– Make sure that you remove any dirt or debris from your eggs before you begin dyeing them as this could affect the color of your finished product. – The dye will be darker the longer you leave the ingredient to boil in the pot of water. At a minimum, boil each food for at least 10 minutes. – Don't be afraid to 'double dip' your eggs to make additional fun colors. – The longer you leave the egg in the dye, the brighter, richer and more vibrant the color will become.
