    Default Headlight Lens cleaning

    Is there a home remedy for cleaning the Headlights on a ZJ??

    Mandys Grands lights are poor at night, the lens' are foggy. I saw walkmart had a product to clean the lens, but they want almost $20 for it. Is there a cheaper solution?

    Try toothpaste...I used it on CD's to clean them and remove scratches. My grandfather told me they used to use it to clean the canapies on fighters and bombers during WWII.

    Hot water, white toothpaste (none of that fancy stuff, get Colgate or something generic) and a stiff bristled toothbrush.

    saturate, lather, rinse, repeat if necessary.

    There not yellow yet.

    I will try the toothpaste. She recently had her checkup and got a free tube of paste.

    Thanks for the home remedy! I will let you know how it went!
