Don't know if the difference is the headlight, or maybe what caused the haziness.  But this does not work on my Chevy Cobalt.  Not at all.  Makes no improvement whatsoever.

My dad told me about this trick too. He also told me about how when he was a kid, during the muscle car era, if your car won’t turn over and you’ve eliminated the cause being a dead battery buy turning on all your interior lights and blasting the heat and stereo and then turning on accessories and there’s no headlight dimming, then your starter is toast, but there’s a trick to getting it started so you don’t have to pay the sometimes absurd towing fees, that he and his friends used to do...hit the starter with a hammer...it sounded like BS to me too, but I recently had my starter die on me and to my amazement, after locating the starter, which depending on the car is usually the hardest part, hitting it with a hammer, it started immediately. This worked 4 more times before payday rolled around and I could buy the starter and change it. So these tricks are timeless I guess, also always listen to your dads, their wisdom is just always on a much higher level and they teach you so much. My dad said the oxidation may appear to be on the inside, that’s what i thought at first too, but it’s not and I believe him. Also he said the type of toothpaste doesn’t matter, my guess is this guy just needed to do another round or two of buffing and rinsing and would’ve ended up with equal results on both lights.

I used to use this method in cuba for scratches on music CDs, PS1 game CDs with scratches and DVDs to buff them out.. and they worked.. mostly the game ones.. it was a pain in the neck when the game stopped...grainy toothpaste does work for sure!!!!

Hey Dave, I just bought Turtle Wax Headlight Lens Restorer kit before watching this vid! In search of an instructional vid I stumbled upon this great DIY vid. Before watching, this whole time I thought I had to remove the headlight itself and clean from the inside, not out! This is good news. I'll go and return the headlight restorer kit, and get my money back tomorrow at O'Reilly Auto Parts. Thanks.

The baking soda in the toothpaste is an abrasive. This has been used on aircraft windscreens for a long time. It's also what gets the grime off of teeth. Toothpaste was once widely known as tooth-polish. I realize a lot of people say their paint has "oxidized" or in this case plastic. Oxidization normally happens in metals, as old paint actually had metal in it it did in fact oxidize. New paint is eco friendly and its actually illegal to use paint containing heavy metals. Lead, cobalt etc. Mostly, Americans use the word "oxidize" to describe anything not smooth or shiny. Good job on the lights.
John T. Watterson III (1 год назад)
Truly? like baking soda isn't bad enough!
John T. Watterson III (1 год назад)
verb (used with object), oxidized, oxidizing. 1. to convert (an element) into an oxide; combine with oxygen. 2. to cover with a coating of oxide or rust. 3. to take away hydrogen, as by the action of oxygen; add oxygen or any nonmetal. Can't help it......I know what I know......However losing H1 could lead to this and substantiate your case.
tomatoplot (1 год назад)
Most toothpastes also contain diotomes, which are microscopic calcified sea organisms. This is what gives toothpaste the gritty feel in your mouth. They are there for abrasion.
wbrudi28 (1 год назад)
yeah..plastic oxidizes dude. enough with being a YouTube scientist...stick to what you know lol more specifically...it's any reaction that oxygen reacts with any material.
LebannersHook (1 год назад)
Errr.... plastics oxidize. Look up "photooxidation of polymers". Oxidization happens to many materials including metal and plastic and even things you eat like your banana that may be turning brown from... guess what? OXIDIZATION! "New paint is eco-friendly and it's actually illegal to use paint containing heavy metals. Lead, cobalt etc." Cars rust from oxidization of metal beneath the paint. Paint oxides (but does not rust) creates an opaque look. That is due to the clear coat oxidizing and has nothing to do with the heavy metals in the paint. And "Americans" use the word "oxidize" to describe something that has combined chemically with oxygen. They do not "mostly" use the word to describe things as not smooth or shiny.

You can also use Chrome Polish to clean the headlights works a lot better than toothpaste and you see fast results
Rocky Lobster (1 год назад)
10$ at canadian tire for the restore kit which is the actuall sanding kit with different grains - just use your drill and its a permanent fix unlike the mcguire shit. sand and polish is the only way to fix anything plastic

how stupidly u make others stupid ................... just caught u at 4:20 sec where there is an add of other short of video which is not a continues short........................so please learn 1st how not get caught
Daniel Wallace (1 год назад)
the video does noticeably change in light color. something happened in between the two cuts. what does a camera tripod have to with anything, that doesn't change the time lapse that obviously occured.
Skyler Gambill (1 год назад)
Originally I thought Sudpto Halder was exaggerating but if you look closely at the pattern of the tooth paste prior to 4:20 and after... its different... noticeably different (see bottom left of headlight). Also the lighting levels changed quite a bit... seems like a lot of time passed. I think our friend, Big Dave, paused the video... replaced the headlamp assembly... then resumed the video with tooth paste over the newly replaced headlamp.
Canaan Lyfe (1 год назад)
Sudipto Halder if you watch the video closer you will see he has a stand sitting in front of the light. more than likely so he won't have to hold the phone while cleaning the headlight.

People have said bug spray with deet (toxic shit) will work very well, but you don't want to get it on your cars paint, as it will eat away at that.... but it's ok to put it on your skin :p

I use mouthwash 😔
This is a scam, spray foggy headlights with water and they "appear" to be clear, however what is stoping your light from coming through is still there and as soon as they dry they are foggy again. Toothpaste fills the pores of the plastic and just takes longer to dry (a few days) you are restoring NOTHING. Visit BrightLightsNow.com for a fuller explanation.

I'll be darned if it doesn't really work. I picked up a small tube of Arm & Hammer Advance White 'cause it has baking soda and peroxide (i.e., has grit). Applied to headlights on a 2008 Prius which had some, but not real bad, oxidization. Worked like a champ—Thanks!

I just did this. Worked like a charm. I still see some patches that won't go away, but to be fair, I've had the car 6 years and never cleaned the lenses. So it might take a couple of times to get it completely clear.

My B-in-law used a Turtle Wax headlight lense kit on my car with very poor results. I looked up other methods here on the net and saw where one guy used a Fresh Lemon , cut in half to rub the lense for a minute or so then let it dry. Next he used a was of steel wool, a very fine coarse, finer than 0000 grade to scour the lense. Wiped it off, rubbed the Lemon Juice on again, let it dry then buffed the lense with a soft clean cloth, like an old clean T-shirt. Last he coated the lense with a carnubba wax, let it dry and buffed it off. I tried it but could only find Ten-O Steel wool and then I had to search for it, found it in an Ace Hardware. I found the surface to be very smooth when I finished with it. It worked and Lense looks like new from the factory.

toothpaste don't work in most cases, just go buy some buffing compound, it's quick and brings the shine back for good.

Funny that cheaper parts and materials for any part of a vehicle "save money" in one instance but cost you more to get them fixed. Over and over and over again.

Toothpaste is a quick clean. That is a temporary fix. I have been restoring headlights professionally since 2007. The kit I use it is the EZ4U2 headlight restoration kit. Pick it up on Amazon. Here is the instruction video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iPhBU8_ZNc Check it out yourself. It's a more permanent fix. Last for years.
