Headlight cleaning tip - toothpaste !!!

I came across this tip on another forum because the Mazda headlights were getting quite foggy. Dead easy and cheap to duo with brilliant results. Simply wash the headlights with a degreaser to remove any rubbish, smear toothpaste all over the headlight, buff with an electric devise ( I used a DA ) wash off with warm water and dry. Hey Presto sparkly headlights again. The pictures don't really do it justice but it has made a hugh improvement, maybe you'd get better results with a premium brand rather than Morrison's 25p value range lol pictures taken in order of procedure.
