    Temporary glowing

    -- Prepare a glowing solution by mixing 1/2 tablespoon of ‘glow-in-the-dark-powder’ with 1 cup of water.

    -- Fill your water bottle with this glowing solution. Shake you water bottle well by first covering the lid on the bottle.

    -- Now, apply the mixture to the clothes while you wear them. Spray wherever you want the clothes to glow. Stop regularly to shake the bottle and hence ensure uniform distribution of powder in the liquid.

    -- Then, spray your clothes with a hair spray; it will help hold the powder in place once the water evaporates from it.

    -- Charge the glow-in-the-dark powder by turning on a bright light or by flashing a flashlight beam all over with a minimum of 10 seconds on every place of your clothes.

    -- Test your clothing by standing in the dark and check. If you don’t feel it is glowing up to your expectation then apply more spray.
