Everything you need to make White Dye

White Dye is the most standard dye in a total of 16 dyes in Minecraft. Being the first dye on the list, it’s a little bit tricky to get White Dye in a large quantity because it will involve the Skeleton. But you can choose a peaceful way which is super slow!

How to craft White Dye in Minecraft

#1 Collect 1x Bone Meal

You can craft 1x Bone into 3x Bone Meal.  And the most efficient way to get Bone is to kill Skeleton. You can also go fishing for Bone but making a mob trap will be much faster.

You can craft 1x Bone Block into 9x Bone Meal. Bone Block can be found in specific biomes like the desert, swamp, and soul sand valley biomes.

Other ways to get Bone Meal are killing fish and using the Composter. But this is just a waste of time and resources.

#2 Collect 1x Lily of the Valley

Lily of the Valley is rare! They only spawn naturally in 3 biomes: Forests, Birch Forests, and Dark Forests. So if you’re looking for a large quantity, this is not the right way!

Instead, find a Flower Forest biome, where you can just use Bone Meal on the grass to grow more Lily of the Valley. And make sure to use Bone Meal at the exact location where the flowers were in before.

Now just break all the flowers and use Bone Meal again.

#3 Finish off crafting a White Dye

When you have 1x Bone Meal or Lily of the Valley, simply put it in the crafting grid and get 1x White Dye. No Crafting Table is required.
