Cleaning Headlight Lenses

In time, the headlight lenses on vehicles become cloudy. If not cleaned, the opacity reduces the amount of light that shines through, which can impair vision at night. There are a few simple remedies that take care of the problem. Try applying toothpaste to the lenses and rub with a damp cloth. Rinse the lenses and dry. Another option includes applying insect repellent that contains DEET to a cloth and rubbing the lenses.

Vehicle owners can also purchase headlight lens cleaning kits where automotive products are sold. Some may try using abrasive cleaners or sandpaper. However, these items are likely to scratch the lenses. Occasionally, the light bulbs may burn out and need replacing with new headlights. If unsure of how to deal with headlight problems, bring the vehicle to your Turnersville garage. A qualified technician may then performed the needed maintenance or offer useful advice.
