How many materials can you get your hands on that offers so many possibilities? One can apply it to flash lamps,lighters, TV remote controls (my favorite).

Try this: cut the small sheet of phosphorescent self adhesive in half, ( half is all we need) Most of us have a lamp right above the mirror in thea bathroom, set the piece of phosphorescent material right below the light.
Turn the light on for a second and then turn it off instantaneous light! Bright enough for you to do to do your business. When you come out of the bathroom, the light will be off and wont bother your spouse.

Add a little UV LED to your drawer and these will be more than charged enough for any late night encounters around the house.

Used something like this on a Modded computer case. is had a window with a Dragon frosted on it. I painted a translucent paint over the inside that glowed Blue under UV light, but was (nearly) invisible with the computer off.

But that paint didn't retain glow, but a UV light would charge it better than a regular light. radio Shack sells UV LED's rig up a circuit with one in the drawer or safe and it would be very bright upon removal.

Sounds like a great option.
Glow-On however charges very fast, accounts about it charging in a couple of seconds are for real.

We recommend small cheap 3x AAA 6-9 led lamps. One can buy them in packs of five or ten for about US2.00 a piece.

Just put them all over the house for emergencies, we recommend wrapping a ribbon of Glow-On around them and hang them everywhere.

Notice that even the thermostat got Glow-On on it

Another"peacetime use" for Glow-On self adhesive is remote controls

Another"peacetime use" for Glow-On self adhesive is remote controls. Those pesky things always find a way to hide without giving notice.
No more with Glow-On super phosphorescent, they're tagged now.

GLow-On and survivakl kits.

All this applications are serious in the sense that give the user an edge. We don't pretend that one's life depends on one thing or another but on a series of measures and procedures that will augment the chances of survival and diminish the risk of extinction literally.

Recently an earthquake became a serious threat in our area, being a survivor of a big one years ago, I'm familiar with the seemingly small but important things that can make a difference.

In a matter of minutes I put together a "survival kit" to help in the case of a natural catastrophe.
One large sheet of self adhesive was enough for it and I had some left.

First of all one has to have a few things to create "personal kits" for every member of the family: A radio, a flashlight, and things in the case that going back inside one's home becomes an impossibility.

A good location for the whole thing is next to the door or exit point, point of reunion, etc. A van parked outside is a good choice, I have a van with supplies for a whole week always.

Of course there is always the chance of everything being washed by a flood, or gone with the wind, or sunk to the center of the earth.
So, this kit is in case we survive the first blow, mind you.

Here are radios etc.



Here is a photo of the whole thing packed. It includes, first aid kit, dry foodstuff, lighters, lamps, radios, a portable TV, emergency blankets, rain ponchos, firearms and ammo, in this case fanny packs and backpacks are OK as you might find yourself herding your family to safety and running for your life and it's not OK to drop a firearm in a situation like this.

Proper training and honed skills are necessary to protect your family and yourself.

Proper training and honed skills are necessary to protect your family and yourself efficiently.
Never leave training and practice for later, contact your local gun range and/or training facility, check schedules, sign yourself for a self defense class and and be an active part of your community.
