Battle Of The Headlight Cleaners

About 2 months ago a comment was left on my Headlight Cleaner post about using baking soda and water to clean a headlight.  I love how easily and effective using toothpaste is but naturally I wanted to see if baking soda and water was better.

Baking Soda Headlight Cleaner
You Will Need:
Baking soda

Mix baking soda and water together until you get a thick paste.  Using a damp rag, rub the mixture all over your headlight until all the dirt and gunk is off. Wipe the headlight clean with a wet rag.

Both headlights on my husbands car were looking pretty grungy and in serious need of a make over. 

I scrubbed baking soda all over one headlight.....

 Then rubbed toothpaste all over the other one.

The Verdict: Both headlights looked equally clean and the baking soda was just as easy to use as the toothpaste was.  However, the headlight with the baking soda stayed cleaner longer. The headlight with the toothpaste started to look foggy again in just about 2 days while the headlight with the baking soda stayed clean for a week.
