Bandaid wrappers glow in the dark for a moment when you open them.

It's called Triboluminescence

I am now going to kill the lights and open one.

I had forgotten about it, my husband opened a breathe right strip in the dark and said what the hell!? And I remembered they did that.

Quoting bcoll: I am now going to kill the lights and open one.

Apparently you can do the same thing with wintogreen lifesavers....grab a hammer and plastic bag and break them in the dark

And I've noticed not all brands do that. The bandaid brands actually glow but some off brands didn't.

Usually when I open a band aid, I need it right that second and doing so in the dark never crossed my mind
