Finding Your Flashlight When You Need It Most

The power goes out, and you’re looking for your flashlight to find your way around the house. Did you leave it in the junk drawer? Is it in the garage? A quick and simple fix can make it much easier to locate your flashlight when you need it most. If you don’t want to risk a slip and fall in the dark while you search for your flashlight, you could have it ready and easy to find with a bit of glow-in-the-dark tape.

Most brands of glow-in-the-dark tape will stay glowing for about eight hours after being exposed to a light source. Try to keep your flashlight somewhere where it will absorb light on a regular basis, such as near your kitchen window or on top of the refrigerator. When the power goes out, you’ll be able to quickly spot your flashlight thanks to the glow-in-the-dark tape so you can find your way around the house more easily.
