    White toothpaste. Rub on with a soft cloth in circular motions. Let's sit for a minute then buff with a soft microfiber cloth. Should do the trick.

    There are lots of products you can buy just for this purpose. There is one "As Seen on TV" called Wipe New.

    You didn't mention what you have on your vehile's lights that needs cleaning. I will assume that you mean the hazing common to plastic headlamps.

    I bought a product called "Plast-X" made by a well respected car care company. Proceeded to try it on everyone's headlamps. On some it worked well. Others it was useless. All depends on how the headlights on your car were made and how much abuse they have seen.

    Only sure-thing is one of those kits where you use your power drill to polish the housings with increasingly finer grits with a sealer at the end.

    Hi Charlie, most Auto Parts stores carry a polishing product or system just for acrylic head lights... Turtle Wax and most of the other major brands of car wax have one.... just follow the directions. You can also use a small dab of toothpaste on a damp cloth and gently rub it in a circular motion.
