hmmm I don't know. I've never tried it myself. That's all they said she did. Did you use a black light to see it? I think that's the only way it will show.

No I didn't use a black light , I just turned off the lights and made it very dark but I think your right about the black light. I'll try that very soon and I'll let you know if it worked.
thanks

Yes, she used a black light to show the effect.

Remember those black light posters from the 70s (that all the teenage boys had in their bedrooms)? Same idea.

(And where would one go about getting Quinine? Isn't that a drug?)

Yes it's a drug. It's most popular use would be that of an anti-malarial.

It's found in in certain drinks like Tonic Water and Brio.
