KENNEWICK, WA - Scott's Cycle and Sports has already ordered the first batch of Albedo 100 in Kennewick. It is a low visibility reflective spray that is safe for skin and clothing and has many parents excited.

Brian Cimmiyotti, the owner of Scott's Cycle and Sports, said "people at night might want to put on something reflective, that's not already where they have something reflective. On their back, on your legs, on any type of fabric or what it works best on... It's washable."

Albedo 100 is a Swedish born product that is primarily used in animal herding practices but has paved the way into a universal low visibility safety product. When applying the spray it appears to be clear, once night falls the glow can be seen from far away. It even lasts up to a week.

Brian says he's ordered a dozen cans to test it out here in Kennewick, he figures this could potentially become valuable to just about anyone, especially trick-or-treaters.

"One of the reasons I ordered it in, it's gonna be something that not just cyclists can use at night but anyone can. Especially for kids trick-or-treating because its halloween" said Brian Cimmiyotti.

Halloween is right around the corner and this non-toxic reflective spray can be used to make anyone visible and reduce worry as a parent, since about 83% of outdoor related injuries happen during night-time hours.

Deanna Madrigal, a mother and the manager of Let's Party, said "any safety thing helps, you know, especially being on a weekend this year. The traffic is gonna be way bigger, there's gonna be a lot more older kids out too, so anything to keep your kids safe is perfect."

Scotts Cycle and Sports plans to sell the product for $18.99 and each bottle should cover up to 100 square feet. The product should hit shelves by Friday, October 24th 2014.
