    Clear nail polish is perfect for rejuvenating plastic-covered solar cells that have become weathered and dull.

    The covers get lots of pollen, dirt, rain, and other pollution. Then the sun bakes it on. Clean the covers, then squirt with Rain-X. You won't have long to wait to see if the Rain-X is working. Best wishes 😇

  • If they are the dollar store cheap plastic, the sun causes the damage. Sometimes it can't be reversed. Try to purchase solar lights with glass globes - easier to maintain. Good luck with the ones you already have.

    Your problem is probably UV decomposing the plastic -- kind of like headlights on cars. Unfortunately, UV just can't be controlled. Pay the extra and get solar lights with glass covers or ones with no covers at all that point down. The solar cell's cover, also made of plastic, will also decompose and eventually won't work, either. You can use UV film to extend its life.
