Yes, I admit it. I am a kool aid drinker. Especially now that it comes in sugar free, I have been reliving my kool aid loving memories from when I was a kid. Though I suspect now as a woman close to 30, kool aid stains on the mouth aren't so cute. But I drink the stuff before I go to bed, or in the morning--and I KNOW this cannot be good for me! I brush my teeth at in the AM and still have stains on my tongue.
So I set off on a search on the web about kool aid related things. I remember trying to dye my hair with kool aid when I was a young lad, and I found out today I was going about it in all the wrong way--no wonder my hair never turned purple. I used to sneak the stuff into my room, then sneak a LARGE pot into the room, then try and get warm water into the large pot, then I would contort my body so that my hair rested in the pot. I would sit like this for a while, until I thought that I had soaked long enough-(surely it felt like hours, but really only 10 minutes). Then, no color on my hair--but everywhere else. On the carpet, on my bed, on my stuffed animals. I think there is still kool aid stains on my carpet in my room at my parent's house.
I thought I would help educate all of us on some little-or not so little-known things you can do with kool aid.
