Optical brightners

Which uniform would you want to wear into battle? Optical brighteners in many laundry detergents make the Airman battle Uniform more detectable by night vision equipment. At far right, the photo illustration demonstrates how a uniform washed in laundry detergent with optical brightener additives would look under an ultraviolet light, while the left side shows how it looks when washed without the optical brighteners.
