Top 21 Uses for Kool-Aid

1. Make Easy Flavored Kool-Aid Frosting

Stir a package of Kool-Aid into a can of vanilla frosting.

2. Frosting for a Jello Cake

Fold in a pack of Kool-Aid into a container of thawed whipped topping. If the frosting tastes a little too sour, add in a little sweetener to taste.

3. Make Kool-Aid Lip Gloss

To make a fruity lip gloss put a small amount of petroleum jelly into a microwave-safe bowl. Stir some Kool-Aid in, enough to make it the color you desire. Add a little sugar, then, place the bowl in a microwave oven for about five or six seconds, just enough to soften it.

4. Make Sand Art With Kool-Aid

Draw pictures on paper, spread a thin layer of Elmer's glue over one part of the picture. It's better to start at the top of the picture and work down. Sprinkle Kool-Aid over the glue and press it down gently. Shake off the excess powder off, and go on to the next color.

5. Temporarily Dye Your Hair With Kool-Aid

In a glass bowl mix a packet of Kool-Aid with a teaspoon of corn starch and just enough water to make a paste. Apply the paste to clean, dry hair and let set for five minutes, rinse the paste out.

6. Make Spooky Party Decorations

Just place some dry ice- don't touch it with your hands!- into a glass, and pour a packet of any flavor Kool-Aid into it. Kids will watch with fascination as the dry ice and Kool-Aid bubbles and mists.

7. Make Kool-Aid Clay for the Kids

Mix together 1 cup of flour, a 1/4 cup of salt, 2 tablespoons cream of tartar and a pack of Kool-Aid in a pan. Stir in 1 cup of water and 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Heat over medium heat stirring until the mixture thickens, remove from heat and let it cool. Knead the Kool-Aid clay until smooth. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator until use.

8. Remove Chlorine From Your Hair

Use Lemonade flavored Kool-Aid. Pour a little Kool-Aid in your hand, then add shampoo and lather up. Let the Kool-Aid/shampoo set on your hair for fifteen minutes before you rinse it and then shampoo out well. (and we drink this??)

9. Kool-Aid Water Colors

Pour Kool-Aid into ice cube tray, one compartment per color. Stir 1 tablespoon of water into each compartment; stir until the powders are completely dissolved.

10. Tie Dye with Kool-Aid

You can dye any cotton item such as tee shirts, socks, bed sheets, towels, as long as it is cotton. The article you want to tie dye must be clean and dry. Pour each color package of Kool-Aid into an individual glass bowl. Stir a ¼ cup of white vinegar into each bowl; make sure the powders dissolve completely. Gather the fabric up in several places and secure with several rubber bands. Dip each bunch into a bowl of Kool-Aid. Leave the rubber bands in place and set aside to dry. Once dry, remove the rubber bands and spread it out so it can completely dry. Put it in the clothes dryer by itself and dry on high for 15 minutes to set the colors in.

11. Use Kool-Aid to Check for Toilet Tank Leaks

Lift the lid off the toilet tank and pour Kool-Aid into the tank. The darker colors work the best. Don't flush the toilet! Just watch the toilet bowl, if you see the Kool-Aid float through from the tank, then you have a leak. The test can take from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the leak.

12. Removing Rust Stains

Remove rust stains on your driveway by mixing unsweetened lemon Kool-Aid with just a little water and scrub. (See #8)

13. Cleaning the Inside of your Dishwasher

Dump a packet of unsweetened lemon Kool-Aid into the soap dispenser, run the wash cycle. Removes stains and hard water deposits.

14. Dyes for Easter Eggs

Mix a packet of Kool-Aid in a cup with 2 tablespoons of vinegar and ½ cup of water

15. Kool-Aid Stands

Send the kids out to sell and play--they can sugar up other people's kids.:)

16. Decorating Cookies

Use in place of colored sugars, just sprinkle a little across the top.

17. Science Project with Plants

Place a stalk of celery in water with Kool-Aid in it to demonstrate how the Kool-Aid is drawn up into the stalk with the water.

18. Coloring Flowers

Place carnations, daisies or any white flower in water with Kool-Aid in it and

watch the flowers turn colors.

19. Demonstrate a Non-Newtonian Substance

Mix equal parts cornstarch and water that has been colored with a pack of Kool-Aid. Mix with fingers and observe that this substance fluctuates between solid and liquid.

20. Shower Prank (Look out, Gourmet Dad!)

This is a simple prank. All you have to do remove the shower head from your shower and pour in the Kool-Aid packet into the shower head. NOTE: Make sure you are not the next one to take a shower.:)

21. Stamping

For stampers out there, you can put Kool-Aid into embossing powder and make scratch and sniff images!

Somehow, Kool-Aid is for many things that have nothing to do with food. That's good because it is nothing but chemicals except for the gelatin which is unflavored.
