Frugal Tips: Clean Your Headlights With Toothpaste
There are a lot of products on the market right now that promise to polish your vehicles headlights – restoring the bright driving lights you used to have. Most of these products promise a “like new” result for $50 or more.
But is there a cheaper way?
One bit of wisdom that is currently going around is the fact that you can use common, ordinary toothpaste instead. The theory is that toothpaste is a mild abrasive, designed to polish the plaque off your teeth – so that it could also polish the mini-scratches and haze that affect visibility.
Does it work? I don’t personally know, as I haven’t tried it yet. But this article I found online suggests that it does work – albeit for a short amount of time. But to my way of thinking, even if the results only last short-term, toothpaste is much cheaper that the specialty products – and you already have it in your home already – so why not use it instead?
