I’m a nut when it comes to making sure our car is as safe as possible. That’s why, when I read about the hazards of yellowed, hazed or dull headlight covers, I immediately paused “General Hospital” and spent the next half an hour learning as much as I could about this mysterious automotive affliction.

First, I should admit that I had no idea that headlight lenses could become “yellowed, hazed, or dull.” I mean, I knew they could get dirty, but I figured a quick trip to the car wash would make them good as new. (And by “quick trip to the car wash,” I mean driving in a rain storm.)

But apparently headlights really can get dull and cloudy over time, and it can have a noticeable effect on the brightness of your car’s headlights. And with daylight savings time upon us (which means more driving in the dark) and nasty fall and winter weather approaching (I get queasy just thinking about it), it’s more important than ever to make sure you’ve got clear headlights for safer driving during the holidays and back-to-school season.

If you’ve got hazy headlights, you can either get them professionally cleaned or you can go the do-it-yourself route with something like the 3M™ Headlight Lens Restoration Kit (available at any Pep Boys location). Since the 3M kit is a fraction of the cost of hiring a pro and it requires no tools, you can imagine which option I’d recommend.

What I like most about the 3M™ Headlight Lens Restoration Kit is that it’s easy to use. And I don’t mean like the time my husband told me that it’s easy to change the oil in my car (it’s soooo not), I mean it really is easy to use. So easy, in fact, I was able to do it myself.

Long story short, if you’re a safety nut like me and you want to save a few bucks here and there, the 3M™ Headlight Lens Restoration Kit is the way to go. You can get it at Pep Boys, either headlight restoration online or Pep Boys stores. For a limited time, you can get a $5 mail-in rebate! While you’re there, go ahead and schedule an oil change – because trust me, you don’t want to do that yourself!
