Be Sure to Include Your Headlights in Vehicle Maintenance

Keeping your headlights in tip-top condition is an important part of vehicle maintenance as clear bright lights allow you to stay safe while driving at night. Although headlight replacement is an option, there are DIY techniques that you can try to clean and restore your vehicle's headlights. In terms of cleaning your headlights, you can use the DIY method that utilizes toothpaste. The process consists of applying toothpaste to a warm, damp rag and scrubbing the surface until clean. It is a relatively inexpensive means of accomplishing this task with the only drawback being that it is less effective on headlights made of glass.

Insect repellent can be used in a similar way to restore your headlights by eliminating any cloudiness that has developed. You'll way to use a repellent that contains DEET and apply and scrub in the same way as the toothpaste cleaning. Take care to not get any on your paint as it can eat away at it.
