Best headlight restoration products and methods to quickly and easily restore your headlights for roadworthy and how to keep them from yellowing or oxidising. There are many crazy claims about household products working their magic when it comes to headlight restoration but do you really want to take the time and risk experimenting? Also, they may give you a quick fix but then you have to keep repeating the process. Let’s have look at two proven products I have found that work and will save time, money and headaches in the long run.

Turtle Wax Headlight Cleaner & Sealant 266ml

Turtle Wax Headlight Cleaner & Sealant 266ml

Turtlewax Headlight Cleaner And Sealant can be used to safely clean and protect your headlights, saving them from damage and from looking old. It comprises a compound to remove yellowing, oxidisation and other substances that create this problem on polycarbonate car lights as well as a sealant that goes on top.

The product saves you time because it does two jobs at once.

While Turtlewax produces a variety of products, there is also an option for headlights that are more severely yellowed or oxidised. Also, this kit contains products like clarifying compounds, abrasives and applicators to make plastic headlight restoration work easier.

To clean your headlights, simply give them a good wash and dry, then apply a thin layer of product to the headlights rubbing with firm pressure. Use a lint-free cloth, or microfiber if you have it to wipe off.

For headlights that are severely faded, you may have to repeat the process for better results.

Meguiar’s Two-Step Headlight Restoration Kit

Like the Turtle Wax Headlight Restoration kit, Meguiar’s headlight restoration kit is designed to bring back clarity and then seal the surface so that it stays clear. Unlike the Turtlewax product, this needs to be done in two steps.

Step One process is using the Perfect Clarity Cleaning Solution with the pad to remove any oxidation. After you have a consistent hazy appearance covering the entire headlight, then wipe clean. You may have to repeat the process as shown in the video below. You should be left with an even foggy appearance over the entire headlight surface.

Step Two process is applying two coats of the headlight restoration coating. This is the step that will bring clarity back to the headlight. Allowing at least 2-3 minutes in between coats. This protects your headlights from re-oxidation for about 12 months.

In Conclusion:

As you can see from watching the videos you can do a headlight restoration DIY with the help of the best headlight restoration products on the market today. I have used both these products and have gotten clear results every time. I prefer to buy a headlight restoration kit by Meguiars because you don’t need to buy additional products like applicators or use a drill to speed up the process or get better results. With a little more money than a single product, you have everything you need to do a good job.
