Use a dedicated workspace: Choose a designated workspace that is easy to clean and cover it with newspaper or a disposable tablecloth to catch any spills or drips.
Wear protective clothing: Wear an apron or old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, and consider wearing gloves to protect your hands from the dye.
Prepare your supplies ahead of time: Before you start dyeing and decorating your eggs, prepare your supplies ahead of time to avoid any last-minute scrambling. This can include setting out your dye, egg holders, brushes, and other decorations.
Use a dyeing kit: Consider using an Easter egg dyeing kit that includes pre-measured dye tablets, a dipping tool, and other supplies to help you create a clean and controlled egg dyeing experience.
Use a spoon for dipping: If you’re dyeing your eggs using traditional food coloring and vinegar, use a spoon to dip your eggs into the dye instead of using your hands. This can help prevent dye from splashing or spilling onto your workspace.
Let the eggs dry completely: Allow your eggs to dry completely before decorating them. This can help prevent any smudging or smearing of the dye or decorations.
Keep a damp cloth handy: Keep a damp cloth or paper towel handy to quickly wipe up any spills or drips before they have a chance to stain your workspace or clothes.
