There’s an easy way to make your light switches easier to find, and all it takes is a little dab of glow-in-the-dark paint. You can find glow-in-the-dark paint at most hardware and craft stores. Simply dab a bit of this paint to the tips of your light switches. Wait a few hours and then test it in darkness to see how well it glows. This can be especially helpful for young children and older adults who may have trouble seeing in the dark. If you have houseguests, they won’t need to fumble around in the dark to find your light switches.
Most glow-in-the-dark paint will stay luminous for eight hours or more, which is perfect for nighttime. The glow-in-the-dark paint will absorb light throughout the day so it can glow brightly all night long. You can also use glow-in-the-dark paint to mark other items you may need at night, such as a pen light, flashlight, or a lighter for candles during a power outage.
