SuperBlack

Do you find your best goth clothing looking grey? Do you decide not to let the zombie housekeeper (parent) wash your gorgeous garments, for fear that the whiter-than-white-fabric-softening-miracle-laundry-detergent will etch away their devastating blackness and destroy their intrinsic nihilistic spirit?

Your existence as an ethereal being will be confirmed.
