Thats because toothpaste has a lot of abrasive qualities. Its like wet sanding. But hey whatever works. to a cheap way of getting it done.

How long do the lenses stay clear, though? I've found many products that work - Some that work awesome and some that help a little, but none that last in the long run. I find myself doing it all again within a month or so down the road. I guess you can't expect much when they use such cheap plastic for headlight assemblies, huh?
