UV STAIN DETECTIVE is a simple to use and highly effective Blacklight Flashlight. Any dry pet urine is detected quickly and easily. The favorite spots for your cat or dog to pee cannot be detected by the naked eye but UV Stain Detective tracks them down fast!
To put it simply, black light is a type of ultraviolet light – specifically, ultraviolet A (UVA) light, where it emits ultraviolet radiation in the UVA band. These rays are low-energy and long-wavelength and are the least harmful as far as ultraviolet radiation is concerned.
Black lights emit a type of ultraviolet radiation called UVA, which is invisible to the human eye. They are often used in industry, nightclubs or amusement parks to make things glow. This glow is the energy emitted by the light being converted into visible light by particles called phosphors.
Look for Stains
Puddles are obvious signs a cat is peeing in a certain area, and there might be some older stains there, too. You can also use a pet urine detector, a special UV black light flashlight. Turn off the lights and make sure the room is fairly dark for best results.
Thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, fluids and vitamins shine under black light. Urine, semen and blood contain fluorescent molecules, so they also show up under black light. Interestingly, some cleaners and laundry detergents, scorpions, tonic water and antifreeze and teeth whiteners all also glow under black light.
Semen fluoresces blue between 300-450 nm, in the ultraviolet range. The invisible (to us) UV rays doesn’t interfere with the fluorescence, so forensic experts can see the stains clearly.
Vitamin A and the B vitamins thiamine, niacin, and riboflavin are strongly fluorescent. Try crushing a vitamin B-12 tablet and dissolving it in vinegar. The solution will glow bright yellow under a black light.
Sanitation. Black lights are a useful tool when checking how sanitary a hotel room or public restroom is, as a black light will reveal any urine, semen, feces and saliva hiding out in the last places you’d want to find them.
Higher efficiency - UV LED lights are typically 1.5x - 3.0x more efficient than fluorescent UV blacklights. Longer lifetimes - UV LED lights last for 25,000 hours or more, and do not “burn out” like a fluorescent lamp - their UV light output gradually diminishes over time.
Petroleum jelly, such as Vaseline, which glows bright blue under a black light. Ripe bananas glow fluorescent blue under a black or ultraviolet lamp.
Pseudomonas Aeruginosa: The Fluorescent Bacteria.
A very small amount of natural sapphires (sapphires can be any color except red) can glow under UV light. Natural colorless, pink, or occasionally blue sapphires with low iron content (iron is fluorescent quencher) can glow red, pink, or orange in long-wavelength UV light.
They employ “Wood’s Glass” which is nickel-oxide-doped glass. Or in layman terms; an exterior coating that blocks most visible light and allows ultraviolet through. Black Light bulbs are typically used for bug zappers.Blacklight.

Whereas urine that’s sprayed typically shows up on vertical surfaces (e.g., furniture, walls, etc.). If you’re able to catch your cat spraying/marking in real-time, you’ll most likely see them standing with their back to their vertical “target” and holding their tail held straight up.
Cat urine contains uric acid, which can last in carpets, fabrics and wood for years! Although baking soda, vinegar, soap, and hydrogen peroxide may neutralize the odors temporarily, a humid day can cause the uric acid to recrystallize, and the infamous “cat odor” will return.
Black lights or UV lights are used by crime scene investigators to identify body fluids - including semen, sweat, saliva and urine. Semen happens to glow the brightest because of its particular mix of chemicals.
A UV (ultraviolet) Light will locate and illuminate body fluid detection for semen or vaginal stains, invisible to naked eye.
Colors That Glow Under Black Light- Whites. White paper, paint and fabrics are treated with fluorescent additives to make them brighter.
Yellows. Bright yellows paints and fabrics will glow, due to the additives to make them bright.
Did you know that there is a type of glass that glows? It may sound like something out of science fiction, but it’s real and has been around for centuries. Known as uranium glassware, this special substance emits an eerie green shine when placed under a black light.
And if you don’t have a laser handy, a trusty black light intensifies pure olive oil to a bright yellow.
While you can easily spot some mold by its moist, brown, black or gray appearance, some mold may not present itself to the naked eye, particularly if it lingers inside walls. A black light can help you spot this hidden mold.
