HowTo: DIY Glow Sticks

DIY Glow Sticks

WonderHowTo favorite (and pal) NurdRage brings us another great science tutorial. Making glow sticks at home is not necessarily cheaper, but it's a great science project. Check out the video below to learn not only how to make the glow sticks, but also all about fluorescent dyes (and why Mountain Dew will not do the same thing).

im not very experienced in chemistry so forgive my ignorance, but could you use this dye to see in the dark by casting light of higher energy?

Now i know... therefore I Glow-Wow!!!

gotta ripoff a meme here:
mix ALL THE DYES!
OK seriously now, when too many colors of paint mix it usually comes out brown or black. so what will happen if all these dyes are mixed?
