How long do glowsticks last?
Here at Glowtopia we pride ourselves on only selling the highest quality products. All of our glowsticks will glow brightly for over 12 hours (often up to days depending on conditions!) (with the exception of our 8″ bracelets and 22″ necklaces which glow for 8+ hours), allowing you plenty of time to have great fun. If ever you are unsatisfied with the performance of one of our products please get in touch with us.

How do glowsticks work?
The glow is produced when two chemicals mix together. Glowsticks are composed of a plastic outer container and an inner brittle tube, each containing a different chemical. To mix the chemicals and activate the glow simply bend the outer plastic tube and shake. Even though glowsticks can be any colour, the chemicals inside are the same, different dyes are used to produce varying colours.

Are glowsticks waterproof?
Yes, our glowsticks are waterproof! This makes them great for outdoor events, swimming and even for scuba diving!

What is the best way to store my glowsticks?
Our products are of the highest possible quality, this means they have an exceptional shelf life of two years. It is best to store glowsticks away from direct sunlight in their original packaging. You should also avoid exposing glowsticks to high temperatures as this can cause irreversible damage to the product. All products should be used within around 2 years of delivery, after this you may experience degraded performance.

Do you offer PTA and charity discounts?
Yes, please see our PTA and Charity discount page for more information.
