Fog lights not only reduce the driver’s visibility on the road, but also reduce the visibility of other drivers to you, endangering the road.

Cars driving with dim lights, usually because of foggy headlights, can risk a fine of £1,000.

There are many simple ways to clean fog headlight, one of which is toothpaste.

“Rubbing toothpaste on a lamp is probably the best known method, and the mild abrasive properties of toothpaste can really restore the shine of your teeth,” says Hugo Griffiths, consumer editor at carwow. lamp.”

“However, you should be cautious: it’s important to clean the lights thoroughly first, then cover the areas around them to prevent the paint from scratching as you rub.”

To clean your headlights with toothpaste, first use masking tape to cover the entire paintwork around the lights so as not to damage the car’s paintwork.

Take an old rag or cloth and squeeze some toothpaste on it.

Rub the toothpaste on the lamp the way you want, with no specific motions for the best results.

After exfoliating, clean them with water.

If the headlights are still slightly foggy, repeat until you have the desired result.

If toothpaste doesn’t work on your headlights, you can purchase a headlight restoration kit.

Headlight restoration kits can be purchased from any garage or retail brands like Halfords.

The kit isn’t as cost effective as a tube of toothpaste, with prices starting from £10.

If that’s not something you want to do yourself, garages and valet services will clean them up for you for an average of £60 for a full and deep clean.

Drivers are always looking for do-it-yourself ways to keep their cars clean.
