With some toothbrushes and toothpaste laying in your bathroom, you can easily revitalize your car’s exterior, per The Family Handyman.


Your toothbrush bristles are delicate and small enough to reach all the tiny crevices in your car.

The bristles can easily remove all the built-up grime, just like how toothbrushes clean your teeth.


To restore your headlights, you can clean the desired area with some glass cleaner or soapy water, then dry it off with some paper or absorbent towel.

You can then place some painter’s tape around the headlights to ensure protection around the car’s paint.
