My son has Crazy Hair Day coming up at school and since his hair is short, I was thinking of coloring it with Wilton Food Coloring Spray. Do you think it's safe? Will it stain his hair? His hair is brown and I was thinking of using orange since it is his favorite color.

TIA,
Cindy

Yes, It is safe. It is food coloring and made for consumption, but... it will stain his skin. Have you ever gotten food coloring on your fingers or hands and its hard to get off?

When I'm coloring fondant, I rub my Crisco all over my hands & fingers and this makes it easier to remove. Don't know if you could do that to his scalp before spraying.

Why don't you do a little test strip like when coloring your hair with regular hair dye? Just a thought,

I use food coloring all the time to dye things. Another thought is to use kool aid. My grandkids like when we use that because it smells so good but I don't always have a lot on hand, but I always have all colors of food coloring icon_lol.gif

Next time you get food coloring on your skin or kitchen counter, spray it with Windex. Seriously, it disappears immediately. Reminds me of My Big Fat Greek Wedding (the movie when the Dad thought all problems could be solved with Windex). There's something in it that isn't in any other window cleaner that works wonders.

Windex also does really help if you get a "zit." It both disinfects and dries it out. MBFGW was correct - Windex is a miracle.
