Step 1: Collect the Materials
Collect a highlighter and an empty jar or bowl.
Step 2: Preparation
Cut open the highlighter towards the top with a pair of pliers and pull out the felt inside the highlighter with the pliers. Breaking open the highlighter might be tricky. Be careful not to crush or tear the felt while extracting it from the highlighter.
Step 3: Extract the Dye
Hold the felt under slow running water. Water temperature does not matter. Hold the jar underneath the felt to catch water as it runs through it.
Step 4: Finished Product
Wait until the water has extracted all of the dye from the felt into the jar and then turn the water off. The end product should look like the included picture and your water should be glowing! DO NOT DRINK THE WATER.
