My mom's formula. We did this every year at Easter. I thought everybody did it this way.  

You need:
one egg dye kit - the Tablet kind that uses vinegar & water

12 eggs. Hard Boiled, I suppose, but you could color a RAW egg and laugh when
someone cracks it open and gets all messy! (evil. be nice!)

melted margarine

Step 1: Mom's Secret Formula

Make the egg dye almost according to instructions, which should resemble the following -

Drop tablet into 3Tbsp.vinegar and let dissolve. When the dye tablet

is completely dissolved, add 1/2 cup HOT water. (very important to use HOT water, not cold) Then

add a teaspoon or two of melted margarine to each mug of color.
<p>Oh my I love them! Thanks for sharing.......</p>
<p>Do you think this would work with mineral oil or vegetable oil instead of melted margarine?</p>
<p>Cool eggs, going to try the oil in one of the cups and will let you know. Color kits are cheap so I can try it before kids are needed. lol</p>
<p>how do you do the dual color without blending?</p>
<p>Just dunk first in one color, wipe dry, then dunk in the second color!</p>
That is so cool!! I have to try this!!! :D
Thanks! When you do we'd love to hear about it!
