Would You Buy a Black Light?

Although pets can be caught in the act of an accident, if you're not home, how do you know if that couch smells a little pee-y because a potty break took place . . . or due to your overactive imagination fearing that very occurrence? While you may most associate black lights with those velvety, fluorescent posters, the special ultraviolet rays can reveal urine, vomit, and other substances not visible to the naked eye. When held a couple of feet above carpets, sofas, chairs, or sheets, a black light can reveal a yellow-greenish color if stains are present.

I already have one just because I love black lights.

petco sells a little key chain one for $5 which is really tiny but actually really strong. We had a stressed out kitty that started marking corners, so while that was going on, we used the black light on a daily basis. note: also helpful to show you just how much human urine is around your toilet, places a mop won't usually get.

It is kind of a disgusting thought having a black light but I would like to have one anyway. If it is there (urine spots) and i haven't seen it then it is probably causing an odor. I wonder how well it has to be cleaned to get rid of the spot or will it always be apparent under the black light. Having 12 cats and 1 puppy and having cleaned up many spots I would like to see what still remains.
