    I love this for cleaning your headlights. At the dealers and auto parts shops they will tell you that you have to spend anywhere from $30 to $200 (if at the dealer) to have you headlamps cleaned. It is important to have the best visibility as possible when driving.

    Carrie, another great post!! Thank you

    Good post . Also ,as your out and about “gunk” gets on your headlights as you do your regular driving to the store, school , shopping, ect. Be sure to give your headlights and tail lights a “wash” when you gas up your car. Make it a part of your routine when you wash your windows . It’s amzing how much film gets on your headlights and tail lights ……

    Carrie,

    I have tried baking soda and vinegar on many things. Most of the time it is a miracle worker. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope you are having a great day.

    I can’t believe the difference that made! I should probably clean mine up. It is important for your lights to be seen. Thanks for sharing this with us at the Four Seasons Blog Hop. I can’t wait to share this with others.

    So far I’ve always used simply window cleaning solution for this task and if I have to be honest it’s pretty much the ultimate cleaning liquid for me. I find that it cleans almost everything and I often use it when I’m off of some of the more specialized cleaners. This however looks like one simple recipe to follow, so definitely goes in the test pile for the next clean up session 🙂

      Hello Dannie! I’m thrilled you stopped by and agree totally that you don’t need all the expensive things, when the simple and practical are often just as good. I hope you’ll let me know if you find a difference in using the baking soda trick, if a little abrasive gets some of the road grim off those lenses or not. Thank you for taking the time for a quick visit!
