Purpose: Just for grins, I took my wife's detergent,  Ultra-Gain, and tried to get some effect.  If you put this stuff under the black light, it fluoresces.  However, the effect was way to weak to pick up with the camera. I want to see if the Ultra-Gain will make the non-fluorescent fabric fluoresce due to its brighteners.

In these two exposures, you should be able to see left to right in each shot:

bulletThe green felt background.
bulletThe  highly fluorescent hunter orange control
bulletA sheet of the copier paper
bulletThe treated strip in the middle of the hunter orange control
bulletThe bottle of Ultra Gain
bulletThe blaze camo control.  There is a big goober of the Ultra Gain splashed on the top of this fabric.

Description of #7 Test:  From left to right: 

  1. Control shot made with flash
  2. Same setup, except lit by Black Light--  See if you can see the 'X' or the 'O' .  In examining the shot, there is a slight speck of the Hunter Orange that got on the fabric while I was painting the 'X.'  That should give you a hint.

NOTE: In this one test, I shifted the Black light from the Upper Right to the lower left, due to the Gain bottle casting a shadow over the field.

Conclusion:  The Ultra Gain did not brighten the non-fluorescing fabric.
