How to make white dye in Minecraft

Here's how to make white dye in Minecraft.

In short, to make white dye, you will need two items, bonemeal and Lilly of the valley, and then place them inside a crafting table to make the dye. 

That being said, both of these materials are not hard to get. Bonemeal is especially easy when you got a composter. Because of this, we recommend getting a composter to farm up bonemeal for the dye, as all it requires is a bunch of compostable materials.

If you don't have a composter, all you need to make it is seven wood slabs placed in all slots, except the middle top and middle slots of a crafting table. 

Once placed in this order, you will be able to make the composter, and when your composter is placed, throw a bunch of any of the following items inside of it to make bonemeal. 

  • Apples
  • Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Dried Kelp
  • Ferns
  • Grass
  • Lily Pads
  • Flowers
  • Warped Roots
  • Bread
  • Cookies
  • Melon slices
  • Pumpkin 
  • Seeds
  • Beetroot
  • Berries
  • Weeping Vines
  • Warped Fungus
  • Mushrooms blocks
  • Kelp
  • Catus
  • Saplings
  • Crimson Fungus
  • Crimson Roots

When you got some bonemeal made, you will be ready to tackle the next part of making white dye, which is to find a Lilly of the valley. In short, all you have to do to find this flower is search around the flower forest biome, and sooner or later, you'll run across it.
