The alcohol that you can drink is ethyl alcohol or ethanol. It is produced by fermenting carbohydrates, such as sugars or starches. Fermentation is an anerobic process used by yeast to convert sugars into energy. Ethanol and carbon dioxide are waste products of the reaction. The fermented product may be used (e.g., wine) or distillation may be used to concentrate and purify the alcohol (e.g., vodka, tequila). Just about any plant matter can be used to produce alcohol. Here is a list of the source material for several popular alcoholic beverages.

Vodka – distilled from a mash as of potatoes, rye or wheat Whiskey – distilled from mash of grain such as rye, corn, or barley Scotch – whiskey distilled in Scotland typically from malted barley Wine – fermented juice of fresh grapes and/or other fruit (e.g., blackberry wine)

If your headlights are so cloudy that it looks like you’re trying to flash beams in a heavy fog on a super clear night, you may need to get over to a body shop and drop nearly $1,000 on new headlights, OR you can take a toothpaste (especially a whitening toothpaste), and clean your headlights yourself. Just put the toothpaste on the lense, scrub, rinse it off, and dry. Voilà, a brand new(ish) headlight.
