Shine the light...How to clean your headlights

I might have mentioned here a time or two that pretty much every time I open my mouth these days, I usually start with "I saw this thing on Pinterest..."  I guess it's an occupational hazard of being a crafter.  

So I saw this thing on Pinterest a while back on how to clean your headlights.  No this is not a pun for anything, it's really just that, cleaning the headlights on your car.  Kinda boring right?  Well, as my dad was trying to teach my 11 year old niece the other day at dinner, WHATEVER!

 As I was saying, I saw this thing on Pinterest.  Do I still have the pin?  No, because I thought to myself, "when will I ever do that?!?"  And the answer, at the time, was never.  I never ever ever ever had plans to clean my headlights.  Because, why would I?  It's a ridiculous task.
 However, I was discussing this with a friend of mine, because this is how exciting my life is these days, I discuss the state of my headlights with my friends, and she said that she had pinned something similar and that it worked.  I, of couse, was like WHAT??!!  And then she told me the secret...

Toothpaste.  Yep, you heard it here, toothpaste.  Well I had to try it.  So on one of my many trips to Target, I picked up a cheapo tube of paste, grabbed a few old rags and went to it.  A few scrubs here and a few scrubs there, and BAM, clean, shiny headlights that looked as if they were brand new.  Will this make me see better at night?  Probably not, but it made my car look less old. 

It was like a facelift.  

And as an added bonus I won't ever have to worry about my car getting cavities.
