  1. To make your egg dye: add 4 tablespoons of white vinegar, 1 teaspoon of salt and your natural ingredients, to a quart mason jar. Next add some boiling water to fill up your mason jar. Repeat with every jar. Allow your jars to sit 12-24 hours. After you have let your jar sit, use a strainer and drain the mason jar, reserving the liquid. Note, when draining the turmeric use a fine mesh strainer. The liquid is now your egg dye!
