I bought this beauty today at DT! I think I’d have gotten it even if it didn’t glow in the dark; that’s just an added bonus that makes it even cooler! And of course when I got home today I had to christen it.
I was so excited to make something in it that I even missed the fact there was a sticker in the mug, so I drank most of my tea with the little sticker half stuck to the bottom of the mug. Welp.
Here’s what it says though: “Hand wash only with mild detergent – no abrasive sponges. Do not soak. Do not microwave.” I feel like it’s important to post that info here for anyone considering buying this one. Personally, no big deal for me. I typically hand wash my mugs anyway because I do a better more thorough job that the dishwasher does. And obviously the extra precautions are needed because of the glow in the dark stuff on the mug. I bet if you didn’t care about it glowing it wouldn’t matter, though.
And speaking of the glow in the dark aspect; it actually legitimately does glow in the dark. Tyrell didn’t believe me, and I was curious to actually see it glow, so we shut off all the lights to check it out. It glows bright. Like, not subtle glowing but “for realsies” glow in the dark. Definitely very cool.
Other things to note: my only other perfect mug is the glass one with frosted octopus tentacle on the side, and compared to that one this one seems much more structurally sound and has thicker sides and a thicker handle. And the red is beautiful and vibrant; as an added bonus it also matches the colour scheme of my other dishes and the plain set of mugs I’ve had since moving in.
I feel like this mug and I will be very happy together.
