MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 14, 2011

I have not done this yet. I have been looking for Ruby Egg dye and they dont make it anymore. this is the closest thing to it. have to try this one.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 21, 2010

We made these last year. We dyed the eggs while they were still hot. They were easy to handle because you could hold on to the cloth rather than the hot egg. The colors came out very bright and they dried right away because they were still hot. They all turned out beautifully.

We're doing Easter eggs today and having no cheesecloth and no time to go get any, the coffee filter hint is a life/time/saver. Love the novelty of tie-dyed eggs.

My daughter and her children use coffee filters then you don't have to cut squares of cloth.
