DIY Headlight Cleaner: From Grime to Shine

For over a year now, I've been complaining about my "high" beams in my car being my "low" beams and my "low" beams being utterly useless. Try driving down a dark street at night and not be terrified that something with jump out in front your car! I kept putting off using one of the kits that you can buy in the store, and I again complained one night while a friend of mine was in the car.

A few days later, he sent me an instructible on how to fix this problem with three things that I already own. The process was super simple and I was highly skeptical that this would not work. However, I am frugal and I had the tools necessary to try this out.

  2. Great article! I am using toothpaste on my clothes if I split oil and it really works out! As I am seeing the toothpaste can be use for another stuff too. Thanks for the tips
