Best Blacklights for your room

Top Blacklights Bulbs Reviewed

black light bulb reviewIs there anything cooler than fluorescent items glowing under a blacklight?

When I was a kid my sisters and I had a number of posters that looked awesome when we swapped out the regular incandescent bulb of our lamp for a blacklight bulb. Put on the right tunes, fire up the blacklight, and you have a psychedelic party!

While blacklight bulbs have changed since I was a kid – now there are CFL and LED versions – they are still very popular. But with all the kinds to choose from, it is worth digging in a little more to find the right kind for your intended use.

The way a blacklight works is by giving off UVA (ultraviolet) light that is invisible to our eyes. That is because it is above the visible light spectrum we can process. When objects like teeth or white shirts seem to glow under a blacklight, they are actually emitting light in response to that UV radiation.
