Re: UV clothes wash?

I was just wondering if there was anything to uv and clothes and did a search and came up with some interesting stuff on coyotes/dogs.

Re: UV clothes wash?

One of the posters on the site you added said, "Uhmm, the UV wash is to Remove the UV brighteners on the clothes from regular detergent so the deer do not notice you."

Is that the consensus of what 'UV' wash does?

Thanks, guys, for the input and discussion.

Re: UV clothes wash?

No, UV wash is simply regular detergent without "brightners" added. Better wording would be "Non-UV Wash". You will need to use the extra rinse cycle to help get rid of the brightners already in the garment from the dye.

Almost all laundry detergent nowdays has "brightners" which are chemicals which stick in the fabric and reflect UV light. It is nearly impossible to go to the grocery store and find a box of detergent that does not list "brightners" as an ingredient.

You might remember the old Tide commercial "Whiter than Whiter". Guess what, humans basically see UV as more white. Guess what, the white hair of a whitetail deer's tail is a UV beacon. Consequently, a deer will pay seriuos attention to a UV object. It may not be spooked until something confirms that there is actually danger.
