The black light will help anything neon colored glow bright in the dark, while the black light itself will give off only a faint violet glow. Also, anything that has chemicals in it which react to ultra violet light will definitely glow under the black light.  So here is a list of common things that glow under black light which you can setup around the house:

  • Tonic water, if you don’t already know, is fluorescent. It will glow when shown under the black light. What you can do with tonic water is freeze it and make ice cubes out of tonic water. Then, add this to your favorite fizzy drinks and serve it on a table that’s under the black light.
  • While this next item isn’t edible, it’s good to have around to add some more glowing things for decoration. Atomic glow works much like food dye, however it’s not edible. But, when mixed with any liquid, it will glow when shown under the black light. If you put some in vials and laboratory containers, you can make your house feel like the lair of an evil scientist.

  • Still using the atomic glow, you can use this along with some silicone polymer to create glowing eyeballs. Silicone polymers are like little marbles, but when soaked in water, they can bloat to more than three times their original size. What’s even cooler about it is that you can soak it in water that has been dyed with atomic glow, end they end up like glowing, gooey eyeballs under the black light.

Now with these creepy Spooky Halloween Ideas, go on ahead and decorate your house for this Halloween season.
