I picked up the only Easter egg dye kit they had left at the store. After we boiled our eggs and were ready to start dyeing them, I realized I did not have vinegar! The last thing I wanted to do was drive back to the store and re-enter Easter madness (everyone running around the store for last minute supplies).
I started thinking.... ((watch out folks!))
Vinegar is acidic. What do I have that is acidic?? I know!
I substituted vinegar with lemon juice and our eggs came out just fine. I'll remember this next year. I hate the smell of vinegar, so it was a win win situation!
