The surprise was that my cats have peed or ejected large amounts of saliva, all over my sofa.


The other surprise was that my saliva does not glow under the UV light.  Whatever that means.

You're a nonnie, if this test works:  welcome to the club !  You got to find out the cheap way.

And thanks for the warning:  that is, I won't be plugging a fluorescent black light in around any furniture.  What happens on the sofa stays on the sofa.

I know what I used to think that meant.  I know what CSI said it meant.  My secretor test results contridict that school of thought.  I don't know what to tell you.

I didn't check cat slobber for glow.... here kitty kitty kitty

I'm just saying, let's just hope it's cat spit, and I don't want to know.  

Yeah, I just read the other thread, Cybertooth.  Why you have to go messing up the easy test for us?    Do you know whether you're RH- or +?  Would that affect anything? (Sorry if that was answered in the other thread).

gosh jill I wished you had of.  Could at least put that girl boy thing to rest.  So far... igbogirl, plhartless and me all come up non-glow, but we are all female.  My mate glows... wait... no HE doesn't, his spit does.

I've never used my black light to test my spit.  It was purchased eons ago, to try to find all the hidden kitty pee in this house before I rented it.  Maybe I'll spit some, and see what happens.

Many of the nifty sounding tests/proceedures presented on the CSI shows are not factual.  TV guide eons ago took three shows, and asked RL CSI type experts to evaluate the validity/ability of the tests/proceedures used on the three episodes, to RL CSI crime labs.

Every show had some some issue/test/proceedure that the RL CSI's could not do.  (In other words, testing for something that was fantasy/could not be done.)  Yes, there was some real science there, but the RL CSI types could not do a majority of what these shows tried to do.

So, I'd take CSI's testing for something, and keep it on the "entertainment" side of television.

Oh, the visuals...............  
This is an interesting thread. Will have to see if I can find a blacklight and give it a shot. On both things.

OH I agree it's entertainment... TV that is and give about as much credence to it as the morning news' health tips.

Before I conducted my unscientific test, I did research and found that the things that secrete into our saliva if we do indeed secrete are ABH antigens and apparently that is what has the capability of fluorescing.  It made sense to me to try it.  On two separate occasions, two of us spitting, only one of us glowing... same person both times.  Mine did not glow.

...or maybe some of your secretor friends have been spitting on it (let's avoid thinking of other possibilities, shall we?).

Ok, you talked me into it.....or shall I say "talked me into asking my husband where it is". Hopefully it's not packed away in the garage or we might as well forget about it. So I need a manilla envelope to spit on? Do I just need to wet the paper or leave a puddle? Oh I hope the doggie doodles don't show up on my carpet.

One more thing though, I'm a female too.  Or do you want me to do my whole family?  One male here of unknown secretor status.  My oldest has been checked and is secretor.  My youngest daughter is unknown.  If my doggie is a secretor we're in trouble, she chews on everything she can get her teeth around (tonight the TV remote!), love dirty socks, gloves, she drools and any other gross thing she can think of.  Can't wait to see what that light does.

Oh, I think he went to look for it now.  Tick-tock-tick-tock......

Ok, we found it and had a blast in the laundry room, which looks VERY filthy after seeing it under black light.  And I just cleaned that room top to bottom last week.  We all had bleachy looking stains on our jeans (and no we didn't pee on them) and our laundry soap spills on top the washer and dryer looked like radioactive waste stains.  Our complexions were terrifying.  My husband's pupils were white and he looked like something from a nightmare I had as a child.  Oh you want to know about glowing spit though, don't you????

We were only able to test 3 of us cuz daughter #1 is in the shower (and very slow moving).  All of our spit looked purple, like the light, but I wouldn't necessarily say it glowed.  We used a manilla file folder.  Mine had the least bubbles in it so it was the least purple colored.  I was thinking like the spit test, no bubbles.  My husband and youngest had quite a bit of bubbles in theirs so theirs was a deeper shade and especially where the bubbles were.  Am I grossing y'all out yet?  So IS IT ACTUALLY SUPPOSED TO GLOW OR JUST LOOK PURPLISH?

Ours is a florescent tube light so it should be the right kind of light.  I'll test my other daughter if she ever comes out of the shower.

I've come in late on this thread so I don't know what you are testing for, but anyway - if you see glowing material in the the laundry - shows the laundry soap merchants used radioactive or contaminated fill in their products. We used to do a test on mainstream commercial shampoos and other cosmetics to show what garbage is used in their bulk fill material. 'Pert' 2 in 1 shampoo (I have never ever even tried that as it smelt off to me, even as a kid) needs sunnies to behold it under black light! (or it used to, haven't tried for a few years).
scarey stuff!

side note....do you guys use Purex?  'Cause that makes my jeans glow....phosphates?  (phosphorescence?)

Good question.  Even under the incandescent bulb my bubbles looked a little purply, but I thought that was just because the bubbles are white and white glows purple under black light.

No phosphates in my laundry detergent.  I use Melaleuca Mela Power.  Unless they've changed it over the years.  WE all had spots all over us.  I'm assuming the spot on my jeans was an otherwise invisible stain?  OUr faces were terribly peppered with looked like scars.  We looked horrible.  My 11 year old was afraid of us.  And I was afraid of my husband.  Hope I don't have nightmares tonight!!!  Gosh I can start a new thread tomorrow!!!  I know I used some OxyClean today and put salt in the water softner tonight so powder from the salt is what I think we were looking at.  I know one thing, I need to clean up that room again tomorrow!  Oh but the best part was our linoleum that is 18 years old looked absolutely beautiful....it looked like some medium brown ceraminc tile instead of light beige on off white linoleum.  We were hoping if we took it in the living room it would make our carpet look like wood flooring, but the light quickly got scooped up by my girls who talked their father into mounting it to the wall in their bedroom.  I can't wait to see how dirty that room is now.  Now I have to go catch my oldest daughter and have her spit for me.....

daughter #1's spit turned purple as well.  I still can't say that it glowed but it turned purple like the light where most things just turned bright white.  All my dust shows up just perfectly.  I think I'll take that light down tomorrow.

Just curious, is there some reference to non-secretor saliva not glowing under black light versus secretor saliva indeed glowing? Would appreciate it, if there was.

Dr. D-it all started on another thread (tried to look for it, but couldn't find it and don't have time right now) when someone mentioned that on CSI (television show) it had been said that under a black light secretors saliva is floresent and nonnies are not.

We have a black light, but I am not sure if it is a very good one as none in the family glowed (maybe we are all nonnies), but then the bathroom didn't have any mysterious markings anywhere either.  (Oh my Deb...what a good housekeeper you are).

Maybe this should be put to test. For any willing parties who know their status and would be willing to conduct this test, it may put a lot of questions to rest. I am ready to know for sure if it works or not. I have been reading these threads for days now and just want to know, Does it work or not? Anyone else out there feel the same way.

This may be a good poll.

My fault... after sending in my sample, my hubby told me that he heard on CSI that secretor status could be seen with black light.

I did some googling and got the notion that the ABH antigens were what fluoresed under black light.

There was a distinct difference between my spit and that of my hubby's.  His fluoresed, mine did not.  We did this two different times with the same results.

Needless to say I was quite surprised to get my results.


It is what it is so I'm dealing with it.

Do you know what your hubbies secretor status is. Maybe it is the opposite of what you thought it was.
