Jerry from Washington, Pa 15301 writes,

Will this black-light help our sales employee detect the Steri-Fab crystals spraying on mattresses?

The Pa. State inspectors are checking the concentration of Steri-Fab on our mattresses and furniture in our thrift shops for resale. They are using a $500 blacklight to inspect the amount of crystals dispersed. Will this help us in training and limited internal inspection?


We have never heard of mattresses being inspected with a blacklight to see if Sterifab crystals are present and we are not sure if the Scorpion UV black-light flashlights will work for this purpose. Luckily the Scorpion UV Flashlight is pretty inexpensive and in this case it wouldn't hurt to try it.
