Fun Stuff to do With Kool-Aid

*Disclaimer - I have not tried any of the following ideas so please proceed with caution.

  • Dye your hair with Kool-Aid
  • Tye die with Kool-Aid
  • Dye Easter eggs with Kool-Aid
  • Use Kool-Aid to clean your dishwasher. Run a couple of packets of Lemon or Orange Kool-Aid through a regular wash cycle. The citric acid in the Kool-Aid removes stains.
  • Use Kool-Aid to remove the green tint of chlorine from your hair. In the shower mix some Lemon Kool-Aid powder with shampoo in the palm of your hand. Shampoo hair then shampoo again using just shampoo. The citric acid in the Kool-Aid may sting your scalp and will sting if it gets in your eyes.
  • To remove Kool-Aid stains from your countertop scrub with baking soda or automatic dishwashing detergent.

*And here's a not so fun Kool-Aid fact ~ Have you ever heard the saying "Drink the Kool-Aid"? I hadn't before today. By definition it means to become a firm believer in something ; to accept an argument or philosophy wholeheartedly or blindly. Sadly the term originated with Jim Jones, the cult leader who ordered his followers to drink poisoned Kool-Aid in a mass suicide.
