Water Rinse


A water rinse is the simplest possible way of rinsing eggs, because it involves merely....water.  No special chemicals or techniques, just a bit of water.

This technique was described in several of the UGS books.  A dyed egg is placed in a jar of water, and the dye molecules will slowly leave the egg’s surface and go into solution in the water (trying to attain equilibrium).  This is a very slow process.....and will not yield a white egg, but a pastel one.

I will say that I’ve never had much luck with this except in lightening colors a bit.  But perhaps I am not patient enough......
