Remove hazing from headlights?

So my mk2 is starting to have a greenish build up on the upper half of them. I know you can sand them but has anyone had any luck with any cleaners or polishers?

Yeah, I recently used my FX10 buffer from Chemical Guys and their V34 compound on my mach headlights. Brand Spanking new looking! But be sure to put a sealant over it to protect the headlights from hazing/ UV etc.

I have used Sylvania headlight restorer after reading a consumer reports test where they rated it as the best. It did quite an amazing job. It comes with all the sandpaper you need, and UV sealant and even a rubber glove. Very complete kit. On a 1-10 scale, I'd say you can reliably improve a headlight at least 3 points with this kit.
