Buy the color close to what you want. The longer you leave the parts in there, the darker they get.
Just do'nt get it on your hands....it's a pain to get it off!
I used to care, now I take a pill for that.

take a pot that you dont like(old pots...ugly ones...whatever your parents/spouse wont yell at you for using) and follow the instructions on the container of the dye. Put it into the pot, and get a few clothes hangers and bend them out. Stick the hanger through the wheel and make a "hook" to hold the rim securely. and make another hoook so u can hang it to the edge of the pot. the longer you leave it in to sit, the darker it gets. with the hanger, you wont get your hands all colorful . Good luck
