Frequently asked questions about fluorescent shoe laces
Some types of glow in the dark shoe laces contain a few LED button cells that shine in the dark. The other type of glow in the dark shoe laces is made out of fluorescent cotton material. This fluorescent material soaks up light during the day, and emits lights back when it’s dark.
Perfectly white items glow beautifully under black light. Think of white T-shirts or even white teeth ! It’s always so funny to see people smile even more when they notice this cool feature. To be sure your shoelaces glow in the dark as well, you need to be sure they’re absolutely white of course. If they are dirty and staines, soak them in a mixture of 2/3 cold water and 1/3 bleach. Rub the shoe laces with gloved fingers. Then add a little bit of blue fabric soap, which will help the white color come out even more. Leave for about 30 minutes to an hour. Then, rinse the shoe laces at least three times under cold running water to clear them of all bleach (otherwise your laces will turn yellow). Finally, press out the excess water in a dry towel and leave the laces out to air dry.
Bleach in itself doesn’t make shoe laces glow in the dark. Bleach can only make fabric white, and white glows under a black light. If you have colored laces, bleach will only stain them but it will not make them glow in any way.
Shoe laces are generally made from nylon or cotton. Glow in the dark laces contain fluorescent cotton.
