GlowBowl A Twist On The Old-Fashioned Night Light

As most of you know, I really enjoy unique items and products that are functional. Today I would like to share with you a new product that takes a twist on the old-fashioned Night lights called the GlowBowl. You can transform any toilet into a nightlight. I don’t believe that I have told many of you that follow my blog, but my father in law has come to live with us. He has dementia and is also having little mini strokes. Let’s just say things are a bit rough. He gets up so much in the middle of the night not only to go to the bathroom but fumble around and sometimes he forgets to turn on the light, not his fault. 

The GlowBowl is actually a little unit that goes on the toilet! It produces enough light that not only is it a great night light, but it also helps him to aim in the bowl itself. Setting up the GlowBowl is actually very easy. 

Setting Up Your New GlowBowl

Firstly, you want to make sure you have 3-AAA batteries on hand for the GlowBowl. When you first put in the batteries, the unit will run through all of the colors to indicate that it is now active. You can then select the color you desire the unit to shine. Here are just a few of my favorite colors out of the seven possible. 

On the unit itself, there is an arm which can adjust to just about any toilet you would have. The arm is in the shape of a hook, and you simply hang it snug to the rim of the bowl. 


When you position the GlowBowl, you want to make sure that the sensor is facing the entry to the bathroom so that it turns on when someone enters. 

Not only can you choose one of the colors for your new night light but you can also select the carousel mode which will cycle through each color every 4 seconds. You can also control how bright the GlowBowl is by entering the dimmer mode. 

I just think this is the neatest thing! Not only has it helped my father in law, but this would also be perfect for kids as well. It really is a great night light. Everything worked as it should, and it was easy to set up and find the color that I wanted to use. You can purchase the GlowBowl for $19.99, and I bet you will want one for every bathroom.
