It’s easter!! & uk that means it’s time to bust out your eggs and dye! But before you go all out, let’s get one thing straight: coloring Easter eggs is totally safe – if you know what you’re doing.
But since you clearly need an egg refresher, let me break it down for you.
First of all, it’s important to use non-toxic dye when coloring your Easter eggs. You don’t want to be putting anything harmful near your food, now do you? And while we’re on the subject of food safety, please don’t eat the eggs if they’ve been out of the fridge for more than two hours. I know they’re cute and colorful and all, but food poisoning is not a good look on anyone.
Don’t use cracked ones! I mean, that should be obvious, right? But I guess we need to spell it out for some people. If it is cracked, that means the shell is compromised, and bacteria can get in. Not to mention, it’s just not very aesthetically pleasing.
Now let’s get to the fun stuff. Want your eggs to pop? Add some white vinegar to your dye mixture. It’ll help the colors stick better and prevent any fading or bleeding. And speaking of colors, neon, and fluorescent hues are the way to go if you want to be the envy of the hunt.
But why stop there? Get creative with stencils, stickers, or even tape to create unique patterns and designs on your eggs. And don’t forget to accessorize! Add some stickers, feathers, or even googly eyes to take them to the next level.
Now go forth and dye them like the savvy Easter pro you are!
