    Had some of this so thought I would try it out on the worst car I could find today. Must say I was impressed. As you can see in the pictures, the headlights were rough to say the least. Following the directions, it only took me about 5 minutes to get both headlights cleaned up

    The problem I have on mine is that they fog back up in a couple of weeks time. Is there anything that would make it last longer?

    I had I think a Maguires headlight cleaning kit and in the instructions it said after you were done to use wax on the headlights to help slow down the problem from comming back soon.

    I'm just going to buy a new headlamp for my 2k camaro because after someone hit it the drivers side has a brand new shiny one, so now i got mismatched headlamps as far as clarity.

    i've used this plastic polish from mothers and completely cleaned the soft top plastic windows of my old jeep from a hazy finish to a brand new appearance in a matter of a couple minutes on ea window , it also works very well on plastic headlight covers . you don't need the fancy hi dollar headlight polishing kits just this polish from mothers and a couple of micro fiber towels
