If anyone out there is looking to become a freelance or private CSI (those exist right?) you’ll definitely want to make sure to have one of these in your kit. The Stain Detector Light uses “amazing” ultraviolet light to reveal stains that aren’t visible under normal lighting conditions. While this particular version is probably not ideal for tracking down blood or… other stuff… I’m sure it’s still useful for finding out that spilled glass of wine is still embedded in your carpet. The detector runs on 4 AA batteries and also includes a flashlight function just in case you prefer cleaning your rugs with the lights off.
Oh and probably like a lot of other people as soon as I saw this gadget I was reminded of a joke from one of the greatest comics of all time, the late Mitch Hedberg.
“When you go to a bar that has a black light, everybody looks cool. Except for me, because I was under the impression that the mustard stain came out.”
The Stain Detector Light is available from Miles Kimball for a pretty cheap $6.99.
