another head light polishing tip

i know i posted (and other members) about polishing up the plastic headlight lenses on our Xtrail, but Easter Sunday i was bored so i started cleaning up my truck and had another look at my headlights. Previously i used RainX glass wax-polisher and it did an okay job, nothing amazing. And i dont feel like doing the proper 20-30 minute Youtube video polishing job such as posted on here last year. So i was looking in my tool shed and i found a near new bottle of all purpose plastic/countertop style cleaner liquid paste made by Amway. I forgot my brother used to buy amway products and he left this bottle behind. So i tried a small area on one headlight and it seemed to nicely polish up my lens. Then i moved to the top upper part of the lens where it turned kinda faded nicotine yellow....this crwam really polished up that yellow haze and now to be honest, the headlights look brand new. Of course if i eyeball up close i can see tiny pits in the plastic, but that is so tiny and these are 2006 head lights so i cant complain. Anyways, its good to experiment as you can buy a similar cream cleaner (or a good waxing compound) for $8-20 and maybe get very good results.$_35.JPG
