Lightweights reflective clothing dots are a relatively inexpensive and very effective way of jazzing up bags, gloves, arm warmers, overshoes and old race capes straight from the packet. However, for best results plan ahead and more delicate fabrics may not take kindly to ironing and therefore adhesion will prove less permanent. That said, ours have shown little sign of this despite several weeks and repeated machine washing.
Lightweights reflective dots not only make the perfect tertiary compliment to winter lighting but reasonable abrasion resistance means they double as frame protectors, safeguarding against the dreaded cable rub or simply concealing unsightly scratches. However, the most effective results require several packs and a peaceful morning while decent adhesives rule out dry runs.
