Produce departments in grocery stores have more onion skins than you can imagine. The majority of them come off when the clerk opens the bag the onions comeOct 1, 2007 1 of 23View SourceProduce departments in grocery stores have more onion skins than you can
imagine. The majority of them come off when the clerk opens the bag the
onions come in. If you call your store and speak with someone in the
produce department, they can set you up with more onion skins than you can
shake a stick at. Most of them go into the trash anyway. When I was a
produce clerk, onion skins were the bane of my existence. They are really
hard to sweep up off the floor! I used to save them for a customer all the
time. I don't know what she was dyeing, come to think of it, maybe she was
in the SCA! They have lots of red onion skins too, which are also good for
dyeing things. Good luck, and happy dyeing.
