TIPS AND TRICKS
Line work surface with layers of newspaper before dyeing eggs — this includes tabletops and counters where eggs and coloring may be used.
Gather all equipment including small bowls or cups for each food color, spoons for each bowl and paper towels for spills. Bowls should be deep enough to completely submerge the egg.
For easy clean-up, wash repeatedly with soap and water to remove food color from hands and most kitchen countertops. If needed, use all-purpose cleaner with bleach for countertops.
Make an egg drying stand by cutting a paper towel tube into sections.
