I had a headlight burn out in my vehicle. Time to replace both I figured. They were getting pretty dim anyway.

I have used the Miracle Polishing rags in the past and they do a great job, but it took LOTS of elbow grease to get the job done. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes per headlight to get them the way I want.

Arthritis in my shoulders, I wasn't looking forward to the pain. So I tried to think of an easier way. Then it dawned on me . . .

I have a hand held orbital sander in my wood working stuff. Maybe that could do the hard work.

I found an old rag that has been opened for about a year or so. Didn't use a new one.

It only took about 60 seconds per light to get these results . . . . and NO shoulder pain . . .

That's awesome I've used the cloths and they work really well.
However I used a new one and the old fashion way.
I had tried toothpaste and a toothbrush it didn't work and right after that I tried the miracle cloth.
I was very happy with the results.
Those cloths are truly named correctly.

Whatya charge?
I work cheap but I can never get myself to finish the job . . . . I'm worthless which isn't quite the same as priceless . . . .

I need some of those miracle cloths!
I'll try to get a listing posted back up later tonight. The Mrs. and I are about to get ready to go out for an anniversary dinner, courtesy of our oldest daughter.

Happy Anniversary, and many more! I was going to figure out how many days the wife and I have been married, but then I would have had to figure out how many leap years there were between 1980 and now. Too much math!
