I still have some strips left, so I will do another round of pasting/ironing on in the coming days. A chica can’t be too careful.
Step 1: Separate the strips.
Once you open the package, the strips are easily separated. Choose the proper size for your item or cut it down to size.
Step 2: Place the strips on your item
The company recommends placing the strips in spots “recreating the human form with motion.” That includes placing the strips so they’re visible from all sides of your body and on your head, shoulders, knees, elbows, hands/wrists and feet.
Step 3: iron on using a paper towel
The company recommends making sure to use a paper towel when ironing on the strips and using a slow continuous iron movement over the towel while applying a bit of pressure. This process took about 30 to 40 seconds.
step 4: remove the clear plastic covering
Once the strip cools, you can remove a clear plastic covering. Mine came off easily and quickly.
step 5: BE SEEN
Thanks to my new Brilliant Reflective strips, I now light up beyond just my headlamp. I am a lot more comfortable running or walking my dog when it’s dark outside.
I genuinely can’t think of any downsides to the product, except for any user error like when I accidentally put the strip down incorrectly and accidentally ironed the strip to the paper towel. Oops.
