First of all, this isn't a computer related post. I just thought this was cool and wanted to post up the photos :)
I was highly sceptical and didn't think this would work, but I've tried washing the damn thing so many times already and thought "what the hell, why not?"
Here's a closer look.
Introducing my toolkit for today; a bucket of warm water, a sponge and the last bits of an almost finished toothpaste tube.
After rubbing a bit of toothpaste into the headlight with a wet sponge, feel free to apply a liberal amount of elbow grease and rub the oxidation away.
It might help to check the headlight every once in a while to see how you're going. No point rubbing over and area that's already been fixed.
Wash off all the excess toothpaste and bubbles once you're done. I couldn't believe it, but here are my before/after shots!
It's not as clear as I'd like it to be, but I'll probably give it another whirl next weekend when my arms aren't so dead tired after washing + RainX'ing two cars.
If you're happy with your results, get some wax to lock in the shine and protect the plastic from oxidising again.
