Recipe for Restoring Car Headlights
The trick is simple and requires a few key ingredients.
- Baking Soda
- Spray Bottle with Water
With these ingredients, you can get the process started. Mix the toothpaste and baking soda together.
Using the toothbrush scrub the outside of your headlights with the mixture. The abrasive nature should start to agitate anything that has built up on your headlights.
Using the spray bottle wash away the paste and have a look. If it’s still hazy give it another go.
Once they are all cleared up you are going to use the wax to cover the headlight. This will protect the light from build up next time!
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
