Step-by-Step Guide to Cleaning Foggy Headlights


1. Gather Your Materials

Ensure you have all the necessary tools and materials before you start.

Having everything at hand will make the process smoother and more efficient.


2. Wash Your Car

Before you start cleaning the headlights, wash your car to remove any surface dirt and grime.

Use high-quality car wash soap and water, then dry the car with a microfiber cloth.

For a thorough wash, consider visiting a professional car wash in Dubai like CarsazGarage.


3. Prepare the Headlights

Use masking tape to protect the area around the headlights.

This will prevent any accidental scratches on the paint while you are sanding and polishing the headlights.


4. Sand the Headlights

Start with 1000 Grit Sandpaper

Wet the 1000 grit sandpaper and the headlight, and sand the surface in a horizontal motion.

Keep the surface and sandpaper wet to avoid scratching.

This step removes the outer layer of oxidation.


Move to 2000 Grit Sandpaper

Next, use 2000 grit sandpaper to smooth out the surface.

Wet the sandpaper and headlight again, and sand in a vertical motion.

This step further refines the surface and removes any remaining oxidation.


Finish with 3000 Grit Sandpaper

Finally, use 3000 grit sandpaper to polish the surface.

Wet the sandpaper and headlight, and sand in a circular motion.

This step smooths out any remaining scratches from the previous sanding steps.


5. Apply Polishing Compound

Apply a small amount of headlight polishing compound to a microfiber cloth.

Rub the compound onto the headlight in a circular motion.

This will help to remove any remaining haze and restore clarity.

For best results, you can use a buffer to polish the headlights.


6. Rinse and Dry

Rinse the headlights with water to remove any leftover polishing compound.

Dry the headlights with a clean microfiber cloth.


7. Apply UV Sealant

To prevent the headlights from becoming foggy again, apply a UV sealant.

This will protect the plastic from UV rays and keep your headlights clear for a longer period.

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the best results.
