I find the toothpaste to be too abrasive and will leave scratch marks. The chrome polish is less abrasive and does a nice job. A bottle of that stuff at WalMart is around $1.50 and last forever. The best part is you can use it on your bumpers too.

Just FYI to everyone instead of buying these kits you can just wet sand the light lenses with say like 800 grit, then 1000 grit, then 1500 grit, then 2000 grit. Then buff with buffing compound then finish with polishing compound, then wax to help keep it from happening again. Looks like brand new when done and only costs a few bucks. I bought a bottle of each compound years ago for this purpose and always have sandpaper laying around, I've been doing this for years on cars and works great and lasts longer than those kits do because you're actually sanding the plastic back to smooth, not just filling in the voids. It usually lasts at least a year or couple years before starting to get foggy again.

i found it best to just take some 1500 grit sand paper and wet sand it down real good then take some 2000 girt sand paper and sand down even better then what you did with the 1500 then just take any normal buffing compound not wax but actual buffing compound and buff them they turn out like band new and last a lot lot longer then most of the head light restore kits

I used acetone to remove the yellow film, they would turn frosty white, then buffed with rubbing compound and rinse, then apply a coat of wax. Looks good for the time being, plan to buy some cool black housing lights later.
