9 Ways To Create Glow In The Dark Halloween Decorations

Black light is one of my favorite ways to add spookiness to my Halloween party. Clothes made out of white or light-colored cotton glow in the dark, and I always try to add some glow in the dark decor to make it more fun. But getting the glow in the dark part to actually work can be a little tricky since black light does not spread very far.

      Hi Jessie…you do have to have a black light in the area (the laundry detergent won’t glow all on its own). I just hung a fluorescent black light tube (like this one from amazon.com) at the top of the wall with the light bulb facing down. When you turn it on, then the laundry detergent will glow.

    Not all liquid laundry detergent glows under a blacklight; Arm & Hammer detergent is a great one to use and also on the cheaper side compared to others.

      Thanks, Sean! I didn’t know that. I used Tide since that’s what I had on hand…but good to know there’s a cheaper option :)

      Hi Terry…I did paint the laundry detergent with a paint brush. You could try doing another layer of detergent (mine was thick enough on the wall to run down). Or you could try moving the black light closer to where you have the laundry detergent…I find some of those black lights don’t project the light very far. Hope that helps!

      Hi Sebrina…I used Tide, but others have said that Arm & Hammer works well, too…and it’s a little cheaper.
