Have you noticed how yellow and grimey your headlights get?
The solution is incredibly cheap.
I've been selling Subaru headlights on e-Bay for a few months and have found that even the yellowest lights come clean with this simple proceedure.
First go to your neighborhood "Dollar Store", "All For A Dollar", "Everything 99 Cents"..you get the idea... and get a tube of "Natural White Extreme" toothpaste. (Similar "whitening" toothpastes are the ones that promise "whiter teeth than the average toothpaste.") These toothpastes are very abrasive and will remove even the nastiest road filth.
Next get a soft dry cloth..dry..not wet and apply a generous amount of paste to the headlight glass. Gently rub it on, let the paste do its work, then rub it off. If it is stubborn, finish up with another cloth and some Orange Cleaner.. and that's it! Dry and you are done.
You'll also improve your night vision with cleaner glass.
It kinda works like polishing compound did on auto paint back in the old days..before clearcoat.
One tube of toothpaste can clean about 8 or 10 headlights.
