For all You Busy Busy Ladies (or Men) who do not have time to stand over a hot Stove all day,this Method also saves Energy and lots of time.
Using a Large Glass Jar Fill Half Water and add a 1/4 cup of Vinegar

Mix in Dye for this demonstration I used 1/4 tsp of Jaquard Chestnut,but you can use Koolaid, Tea,or the left over Coffee from your Coffe Pot
