  18. 18. Many detergents claim to be “free and clear” or something similar, but still contain this dye. To check these claims, I shone UV light on detergent samples, and compared the resulting spectra to a baseline UV spectrum...detergents using the dye absorbed [UV] light...and re-emitted it in lower-energy areas, usually around blue or cyan. Those that showed little change from the baseline UV spectrum do not....Using this process, we chose to use a detergent that did not use this dye. Josh McIlvain September 2012
