How do I clean up foggy headlights?

Is there a product that will polish misty headlights?

Headlight restoration kits are available at car accessory retailers or online, some of which require a drill or mechanical polisher while others can be performed entirely by hand. Whichever one you choose, make sure it includes some form of sealant or polish to ensure that the headlight lens is protected once the oxidisation has been removed.
