Default Make Your Own Bingo Ink

If you have a favorite dauber (I think most players do) and it runs out of ink you can make your own and refill it! I had no idea that was even possible until I read about it and got the recipe for it.

You will need:

strainer
bowl
1/2 cup ripe berries
1/2 tsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
water
empty ink dauber
small container with lid


Quote:
Place the strainer over the bowl.

Crush the berries against the bottom of the strainer using the back of a spoon, separating the juice from the berries. Continue to crush the berries until only pulp remains in the strainer.


Salt and vinegar help retard mold and preserve ink color.



Mix the white vinegar and salt into the berry juice left in the bowl, throwing out the pulp. Vinegar helps retain the color of the ink while the salt acts as a preservative.

Add water 1/2 teaspoon at a time if the ink is too thick until it reaches the desired consistency.
Refill the ink dauber, then pour the remaining berry ink into a small plastic or glass container and tightly seal with the lid.





It sounds fairly easy to do. I wonder if we could make this for printers!!! It would be a lot cheaper!!!

Only make a small amount at a time because the salt will only retard mold growth for so long.

Default Re: Make Your Own Bingo Ink

I have never made any bingo daubers, though it would be neat to do.

I was in need of this about a year ago, but then a sweet man ( I won't mention any names KING ) sent me several bingo daubers and now I don't think I will need any for a while, though my favorite color has already run out so many I will try this to refill that bottle again.

Thanks for the tip on making our own ink.
