Toyota Tacoma

With more time spent at home, we start to find new projects to keep ourselves busy and occupied. After every DIY possible for your house, you start researching projects for your vehicle, such as cleaning the headlights. Lucky for you, this is an easy at-home fix!
 

Over time the headlights on your vehicle will begin to look dull and foggy, which is not cosmetically pleasing. Try these methods with some products you may already have at home:
 

The Toothpaste Method: 

Step 1 - Start cleaning the headlights with soapy water

Step 2 - Grab an old, soft rag and add toothpaste (preferably with baking soda) on it

Step 3 - Begin to scrub the wet headlight, making sure it stays wet

Step 4 - After 5 minutes, rinse the headlight with clean water and allow to air dry 

Step 5 - Once dry, get a clean rag and apply car wax to headlights for longer protection
 

The Baking Soda & Vinegar Method:

Step 1 - Start cleaning the headlights with soapy water and allow to air dry

Step 2 - In a bowl, stir and mix baking soda and white vinegar

Step 3 - Grab an old, soft rag and add the mixture on it

Step 4 - Begin to scrub the headlight, adding more mixture as needed

Step 5 - After 5 minutes, rinse headlight with clean water and allow to air dry
