Question Has anyone tried headlight cleaner/Do they work?

Was wondering if anyone has had any luck with cleaning headlight yellowing

I used this stuff on my girlfriends 2001 Corolla it worked pretty good for cheap stuff....I'm sure there much better stuff on the market...the ones with the polishing pad for the drill motor would be much easier on the elbow too!

Was looking at that just the other night. I don't expect new lenses but reasonable results.
Thanks

I've read on multiple sources that whitening toothpaste works well for cleaning headlights. Just make sure you're using your wife's or your girlfriend's toothbrush when try it.

I tried this kit and there was a difference, not clear, but less yellow. But within a year it was just as yellow. I'll be buying new lights next time.
