Deciding whether you need a headlight restoration wipe? Consider this!

Max Treverton

Headlights are critical parts of vehicles, especially during dark nights when you want a clear view of the road.

However, over time fading and oxidation will occur, which can seriously dampen the amount of light your headlights give out. When this happens you need a solution - and fast! - which is where headlight restoration wipes come in.

To restore your headlights, you have to clean away any pollutants and oxidation agents. This gives you a much stronger beam of light, as well as clearing away that foggy, murky look ruining your vehicle's aesthetic. Keeping up with the condition of your headlights yourself saves you money in the long run, as professional cleaning can sport a hefty price tag, as can replacing your lights all together. 

Although there different types of wipes you can choose from, three features will help you make the best decision:

Speed and convenience

Headlight restore wipes should always be quick and convenient, which is the main reason many people choose them over leaving their car in. Look for wipes take take 30 minutes or less to take action. This way you can get on with your day much sooner with less hassle.

Variation in application

Different wipes are made for different jobs, so you need to make sure the one you pick is up to tackling your headlights. Some wipes might handle scratches, but could struggle with oxidation and haze. Save yourself the trouble of buying multiple packs and make sure yours has all the features you need. Because fading headlights can be due to multiple causes, it's often best to go for wipes with multi-action properties if you're not sure what's causing the problem.

Fully kitted out?

You can find wipes that come pre-packaged to include protective items like gloves. Although these might seem easy enough to source yourself, you can make sure you have everything you need of the appropriate quality by opting for this option.
