Using a vinegar rinse

How to mix up a vinegar rinse

  • Mix 125 mL (1/2 cup) 5% white vinegar and 125 mL (1/2 cup) water

A vinegar rinse prepares the shell for dyeing. Make sure the egg is completely submerged and remove after about 30 seconds. Pat dry with a paper towel.

This can be done either at the very beginning before your first pencil lines (use gloves) however we recommed using a vinegar rinse after your first wax lines and before your first dye bath. This way the vinegar rinse will also take off any finger oils and take off any extra chemicals left on the eggshell.
