"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."
