Life hack - Headlights

So... I thought I would share this...

The other day, I was cleaning my glass top stove... While "scrubbing" the stove with the "special" glass top stove cleaner.. it clicked in my head.. I bet I could use this to clean the haze from my headlights.. So, after finishing up with the stove, I went out to the garage and proceeded to clean off my headlights.. guess what ??? IT WORKED !!

So.. If you've got dull or hazed-over head lights... and you happen to have a glass top stove... grab the stove top cleaner and head out to your car/rv and clean off those headlights... it worked like a charm...

Good luck !!!

I'll have to try that. I also have a bottle of helicopter bubble polish and cleaner, I'll try that too. Thanks for the idea.

Tried it, but it's not abrasive enough to get to the discoloration. It will restore the final polish though.

Thanks. That bubble polish is expensive compared to automobile stuff.

The smoothtop stove polish worked like a charm on my wife's Toyota! I used my Porter Cable DA polisher and it made it all look like new.

All of those new finishes will last longer if you immediately follow up with a good waxing.
