Puffy Paint (Click on image for details)

  • Mark commonly used appliances like the stove/oven, microwave, and washing machine
  • Increase safety and ease of use


For those who find that their vision is not what it used to be, it may be helpful to use a tactile marker for important devices, such as marking where 350 is on the oven, or marking a specific button on the microwave. Puffy paint or bump dots can both be used to make a tactile marker and can go a long way toward making appliances much safer and easier to use. Depending on the specific type of vision loss, vibrant colors, such as red or yellow puffy paint, can also help increase visual access.
