DIFFERENTIATE YOUR BLACK LIGHT / HIGHLIGHTER PARTY
The highlighter party is a staple on college campuses everywhere, and often people find it difficult to decorate this type of party. Laundry detergent is the most excellent solution because it just-so-happens to glow a brilliant blue color when exposed to black light. Because laundry detergent is NOT a paint, it can be applied to many different surfaces and easily cleaned with a rag that has been soaked in warm water. In fact, your apartment will be all the cleaner after the party. Try painting a huge mural on your walls to really go above and beyond.
Note: If you want an EVEN EASIER clean-up, try hanging sheets along your walls and painting on the sheets. You might achieve better contrast, and clean-up is as easy as pulling down the sheets and throwing them in the washing machine!
