Homemade Pond Dye

If you have a decorative pond in your yard, then you know how dingy and dull the pond can appear. One way to brighten up the pond is to add in nontoxic dye to stain the water bright colours of blue, green or even an eccentric colour like pink. Instead of buying expensive dyes from a garden supply store, you can save money by making your own homemade pond dye from basic food colouring.
