2 Easy Ways to Clean Your Headlights

Keeping your headlights clean is important because it helps you see the road clearly. Clean headlights also help other drivers see you, decreasing the chance of an accident. Two ways you can clean your headlights at home are with toothpaste and insect repellent.

Toothpaste is safe to use on glass and plastic headlights. To clean your headlights this way, soak a wash cloth or rag in warm water and squirt toothpaste on it. Then wash the headlights with the rag. If you want to use insect repellent instead, the method is slightly different to prevent damaging the paint around your headlights. Apply insect repellent that has the chemical DEET in it to a cloth. Then carefully scrub the rag on your headlights while avoiding the paint. Do it on a sunny day with no chance of rain because water will cause the chemical to run into the paint. You shouldn't try hosing off the insect repellent either for the same reason.

It's a good idea to clean your headlights a few times each year to maintain good visibility on the road. If you have any other vehicle concerns, you can visit our service center at Audi Escondido in Escondido, CA for servicing.
