Day 223- Nutrition Bite


Use Kool-Aid to dye wool or other animal fibers instead of consuming it. Artificially colored drink mixes can be used for dyeing wool and other protein (animal) fibers, and frequently also nylon. (Some nylon garments are treated with Teflon or other coatings, which prevent dyeing.) The dyes do not attach permanently on cotton or synthetics other than nylon, unless you never wash the item.

Sugar Preacher's Experience

The website also gives a list of legal dyes used in the food industry. As a child, I had a great business on the corner selling Kool-Aid and lemonade to all the neighbor kids. Kool-Aid is a blast from the past and might be a blast in the future as I optimize Kool-Aid for a dye!!
