Social media has been set alight by thrilled car owners after discovering a headlight restoration kit from Bunnings.

The $14.90 Trojan Headlight Restoration Kit is being hailed as a game-changer for motorists whose headlights are in need of some serious TLC.

“My 19 yr old Corolla can see again. $14.90, back wall of tool section. 20 mins work,” a commenter wrote on a Bunnings Facebook page.


The kit promises to “restore your tired or foggy headlights back to their previous shine”.

It comes with a clarifying compound, a surface activator, a UV block coat, a sponge and microfibre cloth.

“Did mine, not a perfect job, but the difference is amazing,” one person wrote on Facebook.

“Went out and bought it because of this post and holy dooly!” another person wrote.

While many people said toothpaste does the same thing, a commenter pointed out why that’s not exactly true.

“This kit has the sealer and a UV protection that avoid damage and make it last and protects the lenses,” a person wrote.

We also found a similar Headlight Restoration Kit from Amazon for $43.17. The price difference seems to be because of the ceramic coating in the Amazon kit.

"Our Ceramic Coating, traditionally used for high end detailing, is engineered specifically for Headlight Lens Restoration", the website reads.

It comes after a $5 Bunnings roller blind hack went viral earlier this month.
