How to Store Dyed Easter Eggs

As with all dyed Easter Eggs, these eggs look best right after dying.

Time spent in the refrigerator can cause eggs to look splotchy and uneven.

The same will happen with traditional dyed eggs kept in the refrigerator.

So, if you are using these for Easter decor I recommend dying them the same day.

However, if you are planning to eat these eggs, they do need to be kept in the fridge.
