About: Imagination is the mother of all inventions...necessity is just the marketing pitch to get rich from it! I love Scub...

I hate fumbling in the dark to plug my phone in, in the dark. So I hacked it with a Super Dot!

Its quick and easy to do in about a minute.

Step 1: What You Need.

Super Glue and Baking Soda. A brush helps, but not necessary.

Step 2: Drop of Glue

Put your plug in a vice or tape it down with which ever side is up. Apply one drop of glue on the plug.

Step 3: The Baking Soda

Now for the Magic. Sprinkle some baking soda directly on the glue. Put a nice pile on there.

After a few seconds, spread it around with the brush or other utensil.

The Baking soda instantly hardens in contact with the glue, forming a very hard "plastic".

Step 4: You Have Now Created a Super Dot.

That's it. You are done. Its a super dot that you can locate with your finger in the dark, quickly identifying which side is up.

Told you it was easy. For more on Super glue and Baking Soda Check out my Instructable Here.

    Man, this is a really cool, simple hack. I bet if you had a better/more in focus intro picture it would be featured by the admins.
