Making water glow is an easy and fun experiment that takes very little effort. See two different glowing water methods using a black light. Read more on how to make glowing water:...

Guys guys. If ya want something cool just put food coloring in ice cubes and drink sprite with it. I did it for my Lego themed birthday party one year. I DO NOT RECOMMEND DRINKING HIGHLIGHTER INK!

You put the water in the cube-tray, like normal, then you put in 1-4 drops of food coloring, for a dark color, 1-2 or 1-3 for a lighter kinda color.

What if i dont have a black light?
Report spam or abuse
Sometimes you can just use and light depends on what your using

Looks like UV (Ultraviolet) light, blacklight is a stupid name. There's no such thing as black light, black is the absence of light surely.

Blacklight is slightly radioactive....Are you sure about that?
Report spam or abuse
Bananas are slightly radioactive too

If you charge the tonic water with the black light will it eventually glow in the dark without the black light?

sooo the moral of the story is completely ignore the highlighters (just because its non toxic doesn't mean it won't make you sick) and use tonic water. Why she even mentioned highlighters is beyond me and its quite irresponsible, I mean glow sticks are "non toxic" as well but you don't see anyone suggest you ingest those

You drink the tonic water not the highlighter water... Tonic water glows naturally because of the quinone in it.  She should of made two separate videos for stupid people.. SMH

I hope that this information would help me😟

Lol! How gullible can some people be?! Just because someone says its not harmful doesn't mean it won't kill you lol. The ink is best for art work not consumption! I mean this even looks all wrong.

NO! DONT DO IT! just because she says it isn't harmful doesn't mean you cant get SICK from it. it tastes vile and it's better to just use the damn tonic water!!

Whoever actually tries to drink highlighter ink is an idiot. Expired foods aren't toxic either but they will make you sick, same goes to the ink...

try amazon or ebay for small 395nm UV LED flashlights.  I believe they are $7-$10 per.  many objects are purposely given optical brightener which, even without excitation, will seemingly appear more white or clean to your eye.  white paper and white paint, for example.  hax.  btw put tonic water into a spray bottle :)

ill try it for my small fountian that would be nice.

is it me or does she sound demonic

The way she is positioned near the camera makes her voice sound like a demon in the background.

Report spam or abuse

Can you use different color highlighter markers or just yellow?
Report spam or abuse
no one said to drink highlighter ink. She said and I quote,"It tastes terrible. If you want glowing water for drinks, you can use tonic water."
Report spam or abuse
How can you drink it If it has a hilighter incide
Report spam or abuse
First: Inside*  Second: The brand of hilighter she used had non toxic ink. Non toxic means it won't harm you, and is therefore safe to ingest.

If you watched the video, it says you can use tonic water which also glows when exposed to black light.

+Taco4Thou It said its non toxic but tastes bad. There was no 'not safe'. Pretty sure you can eat a highlighter and not die.

How to make glowing water VIDEO. first grab the camera.......
Report spam or abuse
i dont know why she said it is non toxic... she then said to use tonic water "safe to drink" and get same efffect..  she did not say to drink the ink...but her saying it was non toxic would imply people thought it made a pretty drink.. and implied people have tried to drink it.. hence the statement about its flavor.. but I believe she was then talking about tonic water as a drinkable substitute.. both only work with black light.

ca you drink the water
