Reading there I once again am told that Deer see in UV. What I'd like to know is if other people confirm this?

Then as a follow-up I'd like to know if holding your clothes under a black-light shows you what they see.

Thirdly has anyone tried http://www.camorestore.com/, and to what effect?

And lastly, is it the phosphates in laundry detergent that make clothes glow, or is there some other aspect that makes SportWash different?

It's the UV brighteners in the detergent that cause the UV glow. It's the ingredient Clorox II uses to brighten colors in their color-safe bleach. Almost all, if not all, use it.
