Is There Any Way to Restore Headlights at Home?

Drivers often take a look at a new car on the Truck Town lot and then say that the weather in Bremerton, WA is going to make the fresh headlights on it turn yellow in just a matter of weeks. While they might be exaggerating just a bit, they make a good point. Headlight lenses turn yellow very quickly.

Fortunately, there's something you can do to reverse this process. Fill a bucket with water and add a small amount of mild detergent to it. You might want to use whatever you've been using to wash dishes with.

Clean your headlight lenses with this solution and then dry them as well as you can. Once they're dry, see if you can clean them up with a solution of denatured alcohol. This can help to remove some of the oxidization and debris that makes your headlights look cloudy and yellow after a few years out on the road.
