White Dye is a very useful substance available in Minecraft used to change the colors of various objects into white. For example, it allows you to apply it to sheep to dye its wool, applies to tamed wolves to dye its collar, or to tamed cats to dye their collars. In addition to these, the White Dye can also be used for things like making fade-to-color effect combined with the firework star. The usages are many which we discussed in the following sections in detail. For now, let’s see how can we make some White Dye in Minecraft.
Materials needed to make White Dye
- 1x Bone Meal
- 1x Lily of the Valley
You don’t need both of these items. You just need either of them. Unlike many other substances, there is no combinations required to make White Dye.
