Non-Toxic Homemade Wood Stain From Tea

 
Today I share a recipe from the MondoMom for natural, non-toxic wood stain. Here’s what you need:

     
    Black tea
    Boiling water
    Vinegar
    A brush
    Yep, that’s it.

You need to steep your tea strong, say 3 bags in 1/2 cup of water and leave them in for 15 minutes before removing. Add half as much vinegar as water. Cool and stain!
 
I know vinegar concoctions often work on wool, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised if it stains wood, too. If anybody has tried this, let me know. Does it last long? Is it worth using on outdoor pieces?
