Hi David! Thank you for calling out that typo. You are 100% correct about photon absorption rather than reflection. Semantic slips will be the end of me! As for washing, you can wash the garment normally, no additional care required. Thank you for your support! Warmly,
Maddy

"Conjugated systems are very stable and give rise to strong pigments as they reflect photons. This reflection of photons makes the pigment appear to be black."
Surely you mean absorb not reflect...
Also, how does the use of UV brighteners in laundry detergent alter the process? I'm hoping the answer is "There is no effect on the dye. You can wash as per usual as you would a normal garment." but I thought I would ask.

I just happened upon this kickstarter, thought it was cool, and then said "Oh! I know her!" So excited to support this.
