Eggs. Whether you prefer them scrambled, fried or sunny-side up, they’re a staple on the table during the spring. If you’re whipping up deviled eggs for Easter, boiling an egg for your Passover meal, or trying a new poaching technique for brunch, hold onto your shells. There are many uses for eggshells around the home. Here are a few to get you started:

Start Seedlings

A clean, halved shell serves as a perfect place to start seedlings for your garden. To learn more, read: Plant The Seed: A Potless Approach To Spring Gardening.

Clean Pans

Next time you clean a greasy pan, add crushed eggshells to your dishwashing liquid. They break up food particles and remove grease.

Clear Drains

Finely crushed eggshells clear fine particles out of drains and keep your water flowing smoothly. Crush your eggshells and then sprinkle them down the drain with the water flowing. The friction will clear debris from your drain’s sides.

For more clever cleaning tips with common household items:

For a unique spin on a springtime classic, dye your deviled eggs pink. Hint: The pink coloring comes from beet juice. For step-by-step instructions, visit The Year In Food.
