You know how to use an egg, now use the shells!

August 7, 2018

You know you can do a lot with eggs...but do you know how much you can do with all those eggshells?! Take a look...

  • Fill eggshells with soil to use them as biodegradable seed starters.
  • Sanitize the shells and poke tiny holes in the bottoms with a sewing needle for drainage. Then, fill the shells with soil and two or three seeds. Once the seeds have sprouted you can plant the shells directly into dirt!
  • Scour a dirty pan with a soapy sponge and crushed eggshells to make it sparkle.
  • Grind up shells and sprinkle the powder in your dog's food for extra nutrients. Eggshells are a great source of calcium, and pups needs it as much as we do! Sanitize the shells and pulverize them in a blender or coffee grinder until they're a very fine powder without any sharp edges. Keep the powder in an airtight jar for up to two months, and give your pup about a 3/4 teaspoon per cup of food.
  • Let them soak with warm water in your mugs to clean off coffee or tea stains. The eggshells will absorb the stains overnight.
