Does anyone know how to clear cloudy headlights on your car?

I have tried Colgate toothpaste and a kit from Walmart that didn't work. Hopefully someone has the magic answer

    @Belinda Todd If you get the OFF Deep Woods bug spray, it will take the fog off of your headlights in one to two treatments!

    I think the best treatment is the headlight restoration kit from Mother's. It is a product that is a little pricey but worth it. The result speaks for itself.

    The head light restoration kit I tried was expensive an did not work. It left cloudy patches. Deep woods bug spray did a better job and cost much less.

    I agree .... "Deep Woods Off Bug Spray". Just, spray wipe. If really bad .... Apply again. It took 3 applications for one. Be sure to wash off.

    Repel mosquito bug spray! It works fantastic!!! Spray on lamp lens and rub with washcloth. I think it has more to do with the oils and conditiining the plastic lens, like wood with water stains, or dried out.

    A CAA mechanic suggested wiping with gas which worked for my very cloudy headlights on a 12 yr old vehicle. Good luck!

    Magic eraser and elbow grease! Make sure glass stays wet and scrub! 2000 Honda lines are looking good! Too bad for the door dings from careless people! 😃

    I tried the restoration kits- helped a little but mostly difficult to use and ineffective. Then I discovered when I took my car to Wal Mart for an oil change, that they can buff them out for around $30 good as new!!!! I spent that much on the restoration kit.

    If I'm not mistaken, Vineger works. I read it on a DIY Blog online. Couldn't hurt. give it a try. Good luck.

    It's according to how old your car is. The damage could be on the inside of the headlights. I've heard that the bug spray works really well. I've not tried it yet, but intend to.

    What about Windex?? You may have to use this a couple of times.
