As we hit the open road

our car’s headlights become our trusted companions, lighting the way through darkness and fog. However, over time, these vital safety features can become dull due to exposure to the elements and road grime.

In many states, annual safety inspections put the spotlight on clean headlights, as they play a crucial role in visibility.

Fear not! We’ve got you covered with Headlight Cleaning Tips that are sure to make it so you can see at night.

Shine Bright: Headlight Cleaning Tips

First things first, gather your supplies.

You’ll need EarthSential’s All Purpose Cleaner (or a similar natural cleaning solution), a microfiber cloth, masking tape, sandpaper (800-1000 grit), water, and UV-resistant clear coat.

Masking and Prepping: To avoid any unintentional scratches, mask off the area around the headlights with masking tape. Wet the headlights with water to create a barrier between the headlight surface and the sandpaper.

Sanding Away the Grime: Dampen the sandpaper and gently sand the headlights in horizontal motions. Keep the surface wet to avoid scratching. This process removes the oxidized layer, revealing clearer plastic underneath.

Rinsing and Drying: Rinse the headlights thoroughly to remove any sanding residue. Dry them completely before moving to the next step.

EarthSential’s All Purpose Cleaner Magic: Create a solution of EarthSential’s All Purpose Cleaner and water in a spray bottle. Spray the solution on a microfiber cloth and gently clean the headlights to remove any remaining grime or residue. EarthSential’s natural formula makes it a safe and effective choice for cleaning.

UV Protection with Clear Coat: To prevent future oxidation, apply a UV-resistant clear coat specifically designed for headlights. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for even application.

Unveiling the New Glow: After allowing the clear coat to dry, peel off the masking tape. Your headlights should now shine like new, enhancing both your vehicle’s aesthetics and your night-driving safety.

Passing the Safety Inspection: With your headlights now gleaming, you’re better equipped to pass the annual safety inspection. Clear and bright headlights not only ensure your safety but also enhance the appearance of your vehicle.

Safety and Style in One Shine:

Car headlights are more than just lights; they’re vital components that ensure our safety on the road. Regular cleaning and maintenance go a long way in keeping them both functional and stylish.

With EarthSential’s All Purpose Cleaner as your trusted sidekick, you can achieve the perfect balance of safety and style, illuminating the road ahead and ensuring you drive with both peace of mind and a touch of elegance.
