A Cautionary Tale


Was I tempting fate making those green witches’ finger cookies? Two days later I was using green fabric dye, and this is what happened.

Lesson learned: when using fabric dye, wear proper rubber gloves – not the flimsy plastic ones that come in the package.  If they spring a leak, you may end up with a very well-dyed finger for a few days!  It did eventually wear off…. three days later.

  1. Do I see drops on the floor? Thank goodness it wasn’t carpet!

  2. Yes, I’ve been there too! Nice thick marigold gloves for me now. I used to use latex which are okay for a while before they rip but they’re not so good when its time to lift out hot stuff – ouch!

    You do get the oddest looks when you have blue fingers:-))
