Cleaning Headlights

Postby Doc E » Wed Dec 05, 2018 9:42 am

I need to clean the headlights on my rigs.

Some say to use brake cleaner
Some say to use brake fluid
Some say that either of these will ruin your headlights
Some say to let Wal Mart do it for $30

What say you all ?

I'm assuming you are referring to the plastic housing the bulbs fit into. Never heard of using brake cleaner or brake fluid. You could always go to a junk yard and try them out on a junker to see if they work, but I wouldn't use them until I was sure they were safe on plastic. Periodic waxing with auto wax will help prevent them from hazing.

Here's an inexpensive way to remove haze: ... oothpaste/
I've had several really good dogs, but none were perfect. Neither am I, so keep that in mind!

Cleaning and removing the haze are two different things. Soap and water for one, lots of new products for the other. Can't say what works but I need to address this on my truck one of these days.
