    Here is an interesting tip..



    Use toothpaste on your slightly scratched and misty headlights to bring them back to a like new condition.

    I did something similar to this with a mild cutting polish and it worked well, I can only guess this will be less abrasive and probably more friendly.

    So if you want minty fresh headlights try this tip! What do you use to fix your scratched plastic headlights?

    Seen this used on mobile phone screens. The toothpastes with whitening agents are usually more abrasive than the normal ones.
