Care/use instructions: Use the egg dye only in stainless steel saucepan (enameled pots would be stained). To the saucepan, add 750 ml of cold water and 1 dye sachet. Add 5-7 clean, fresh, raw eggs. They should be covered by about 1cm of water. Bring to the boil and stir until the dye dissolves (the green dye produces a foam - don't worry about that). Boil for 7-10 minutes, then remove the eggs and wash with cold water. You can use the dye-water again - each use will produce lighter-coloured eggs. Brown eggs will actually result in a more intense colour than white ones!
