What to prepare

Get started

  1. Clean the headlights: Using a soft cloth, wipe the headlights with soapy water to remove any surface dirt or grime.
  2. Apply toothpaste mixture: Mix toothpaste with baking soda and apply to a cloth and rub it onto the headlight in a circular motion. Apply with firm, even pressure so that it penetrates the oxidation.

  6. Finish: Once you're satisfied, wipe the headlights with a clean, dry cloth to remove any excess toothpaste residue.
