‘I was so sick of my headlights looking cr*ppy. So I tried using gumption on them and wow! They look almost new again!’ she said.

The abrasive but smooth paste product worked well at removing the ingrained stains easily.
Gumption has been made in Australia for over 60 years and is a great alternative to harsh chemicals or bleaches.
Others who have experienced the same car issue tried the product for themselves and said it was ‘great’ at restoring the lights to the original condition.
‘I would have never thought of that! What a great idea,’ one woman said.

‘I tried it on the weekend and it worked!!’ a second said.
‘They look great. Hubby says you need to spray a clear coat on top to seal it or it’ll just go back to cloudy,’ another suggested.
Some also recommended additional supermarket products that have also worked well to de-fog car lights.
‘Toothpaste works as well and everyone has that,’ one mum said.
‘We use Jiff on our cars, comes up just a great,’ another said.
A third added: ‘I clean mine with Windex each time after washing the car.’

And this isn’t the first time a savvy mum has shared how to de-fog car headlights on Facebook.
In June a Perth woman combined toothpaste and baking powder and rubbed the mixture thoroughly on the headlights.
‘I fixed the headlights on my car using a mix of toothpaste and baking powder and good old fashioned elbow grease! It worked really well and the headlights came up a treat,’ she wrote online.
Leonie said she first used a paper towel to apply the mixture but then used her fingers to rub it in further.
The headlights were left as if they were brand new.
