How to Get the Right Glow? Cheat Slip


In our Glow in the Dark bath bomb-making experiment, we discussed the science of things that glow in the dark for a considerable time. A process called luminescence is brought on by substances. It's how glow-in-the-dark pigment powder functions. 


This Glow needs to be charged with light to function. Before turning off the lights, allow the bath bombs to set in bright sunlight. Thus, the luminescent phosphors will be charged. 


When you first turn off the lights, your Glow will be the brightest; after that, it will fade. Simply turning on the lights again for a minute will recharge the Glow.
