Make your own Easter egg dye!
For some of you this may be a no-brainer but I've got to believe there are some that didn't know this already..like me!
I saw something on Pinterest about Kool-Aid but I don't have Kool-Aid and I think that may cost more than the dye kits.
If you already have Assorted Food color you can simply use that rather than purchasing dye kits.
Right on the back of the box of McCormick Food Coloring they give precise instructions on how to make 9 different colors from four base colors.
Mix 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 tsp vinegar and food coloring! Dip eggs into dye for 5 minutes or longer.
RED = 20 drops
YELLOW= 20 drops
GREEN = 20 drops
BLUE = 20 drops
PRETTY PURPLE= 5 RED + 15 BLUE drops
ORANGE SUNSET = 17 YELLOW + 3 RED drops
TEAL = 5 BLUE + 15 GREEN drops
MINT GREEN = 14 GREEN + 6 YELLOW drops
DUSTY ROSE=14 RED + 6 BLUE drops
I can't wait to try this. Let us know if you've tried it and how it works out for you!
