  1. Or stick? with the mouth region and buff with UVA protection lipstick

  2. hoohoohoblin says:

    Thanks. I wonder if regular coatings of something like Armor All would give some UV protection.? It’s supposed to protect against UV rays.

  3. hoohoohoblin says:

    Yes. Baking soda? does help, or use that antiplaque toothpaste with baking soda in it.

  4. Vince Sykes says:

    It works better if you mix the toothpaste with a little? baking soda

  5. Martin Brooke says:

    Got to point out that you are removing the UV protective layer from the lens. It deteriorates with? time. So to avoid repeat hazing and worse damage to the plastic you must replace the protection. The wax should be good if you do it regularly. Something more specific would be ideal but that would defeat the noble challenge of doing it with stuff around the house.
    Admirable effort hohohoblin.

  6. Martin Brooke says:

    And just how did? you measure a 70% increase in light?

  7. hoohoohoblin says:

    Brilliant! ?

  8. Whhhoooooooo lives in a toothpaste tube? and buffs your car’s lens??? SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS!!!! Who shines them up and smells mint miles away? SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS!!!

    -Squidsward: ”Amateurs! Real detailers use Polident to fix dents and polish your car!”

    Sooooo…. whyh did you have Sponge Bob? laying around?

  10. hoohoohoblin says:

    If they’re that bad, you might try wet sanding, or using something like Bon Ami or baking soda. If you use a mild abrasive to grind down the top surface and then use milder abrasives to smooth them out,? it should work, or at least make it better.

  11. Shareallicu says:

    Nothing works on my headlights, they have tons of little cracks in them… I was thinking of wet? sanding them, but I’m afraid I will make it worse!

  12. hoohoohoblin says:

    That is sad. Spongebob is a great character, and the? cartoon is really funny. My son liked it when he was little and still watches it 5 years later.

  13. Cant? believe spongebob’s voice actor died…so sad…

  14. hoohoohoblin says:

    I don’t know if it can damage the plastic, but you definitely don’t want to? get it on the painted parts of the car.

  15. stuflikethis says:
