I’ve had my car for over five years and never really looked into cleaning the headlight enclosures. Since starting my clinical rotations, I’m leaving the house before sunrise and returning after dark; therefore, good visibility in the dark has become increasingly important. After looking at several headlamp cleaning products, I went with the Quixx Acrylic Scratch Remover.
Right off the bat, this kit comes with everything you need – the actual paste, sandpaper, and a polishing cloth. Because my headlamps were extremely dirty, I spent extra time with the sandpaper removing whatever filth I could with some water and a dry cloth.
Per the instructions, I then applied some paste, buffed it away with the included cloth for a minute or two, and then repeated the instructions with the other headlight. The entire process took roughly five minutes per headlight, but I plan to regularly clean them from now on.
The Quixx product definitely brought my headlamp covers back to factory condition. I didn’t think to take a “before” picture, but here’s an “after” picture of the driver-side headlight.
Overall, it was $10 well spent. I’ll be returning to the hospital tomorrow (off today for MLK Day), so I’m excited to see how much my driving experience has improved. 🙂
