    Red Egg Dye

    Posted by Cheryl H. on May 3rd 2022

    Wow! The Red Egg Dye turned our brown eggs into a deep dark red-brown. I followed the instructions using hot water and hot eggs, and leaving in dye for 2-minutes. I was able to dye 48 eggs by just adding a bit more hot water at the very end. The egg dying was very easy and clean up was surprisingly easy as well, the dye on towels washed right out. The dyed eggs were stored in fridge for 2-days and when we took them out, the dye did bleed some onto our hands; but it washes right off. Next year I will try with white eggs to see what brilliant color it makes; since the brown eggs created such a deep dark red, I'm confident the white will produce a brilliant bright red. Brown eggs or white eggs - Legacy Icons Red Egg Dye is easy and produces great color! (Be sure to use hot water & hot eggs & leave in dye for 2-minutes like instructions say to do. Oh, don't forget the vinegar, as well.)
