    What kind of toothpaste? As I use Sensodyne, way too expensive to use as a cleaner.

    I just went out and tried this on one of my headlights; there is a definite improvement from the untouched one to the “toothpasted” one. I don’t know what effect the toothpaste residue might have on my paint finish and it’s hard not to drip some on the area surrounding the headlight. I cleaned it thoroughly and hosed off the residue, but I’m going to wait until I’m ready to wash my car or take it to the car-wash later this week before I do the other headlight. Thanks for the great tip!

      Toothpaste is EXCELLENT at getting crayon and marker off of the walls of your house. With that, I’d guess that it won’t hurt the paint on your car — as it doesn’t do a thing to my walls. I literally keep a little tube in the kitchen drawer. Mmmm, come to think of it, I wouldn’t worry about the residue of the toothpaste as much as the abrasiveness, b/c I think that’s really what gets the crayon off the wall. As long as it’s just dripping and not being scrubbed onto your car, you’ll probably be ok. :)

  4. I tried this and it was easy. Less costly than I thought. My head lights look so much brighter. Thanks.
