In this instructable, I'll show you how to create your own fluorescent compounds out of something you probably already have in your home.
Step 1: Gather Your Items
Grab some highlighters from your desk, bureau, backpack, friend's locker, mom's credenza...you know, wherever. They're lying all about if you really look for them, those unassuming little pearls hiding right in front of our piggish noses. You can use the big fat ones or the slimmer bic-type highlighters, depending on how much fluorescent solution you want to make. The slim versions are fine to make about 150mL to 200mL, depending on how much highlighter fluid is in the highlighter pen. The fat highlighters can make upwards of 500mL of fluorescent solution.
Now, go get 'em!
