  1. Shopping
Usually there’s a lot of fuss when it comes to buying eggs and paint. First, the crowds of people fighting to get their egg basket on time! Then it’s about the hundreds and thousands of egg paints that almost get you confused. To avoid all this, we would suggest that you shop online and search for reliable brands that guarantee high quality of their products. Be aware that if you buy eggs from various places, there’s a huge chance that some are well-painted while others stay pale.
  1. Washing the eggs
You probably know that there’s one essential step before starting off with the real fun – boiling and dying. In the very beginning it’s good to wash all the eggs with lukewarm water. In case they happen to be dirtier than normal, use a light brush or a sponge so that you avoid scratching. Or, an alternative way is to soak them in salted water for half an hour or so. Both options work!
  1. Boiling
For some housewives one of the greatest nightmares during the Easter egg-painting is cracked eggs. While they are boiling, there’s a chance that this happens, of course. However, there are some tricks in order to prevent such ‘accidents’. First of all, start by gradually and very slowly heating up the water. Then, when it starts boiling, add salt and voila! Just these two simple procedures might help you avoid cracking. egg boiling
  1. Dying
Time for fun! So, when you start painting, pay attention to the amount of eggs your paint is suitable for. You don’t want to end up with pale or (even worse!) not dyed eggs, right?! If more folks are willing to join, make sure to supply all of them with gloves. And of course, in the end throw the excess paint away, because some kids might be tempted by the colourful jars! “Carefulness costs nothing.” dying Easter eggs
  1. Storage
So, after all the work is done, it’s time to store the produce safely. If you want the eggs to last longer, place the basket (or whatever you store them in) away from direct sunlight! Of course, electric appliances are also dangerous for the brittle eggs so stay away from them as well. In case you are suspicious that an egg might be rotten or there’s paint in the inside, you better throw it away. Safety first! We hope we’ve helped and we wish you to have lots of fun while dying your Easter eggs! For some creative ideas on how to decorate the eggs in attractive ways, read this article!
