10 Money Saving Ways to Use Eggs - TM2S

Check out these 10 Money Saving Ways to Use Eggs:

1. Did you know you could make your own sidewalk chalk with eggshells, flour, and hot water?  Just crush about four eggshells until they are powdery.  Mix a teaspoon of flour, a teaspoon of the eggshell powder and a teaspoon of hot water.  Stir until it is well combined.  Next, shape it into your piece of chalk.  Roll wax paper around it once its shaped.  Give it about five to seven days to dry before you use it.

2. Is your hair damaged from the weather, to much heat or to many products?  Don’t spend your money on those expensive oil treatments or deep masks, just put together a treatment using eggs.  That’s right egg shampoo.  Break an egg and mix it with 1/4 cup warm water, and 1 teaspoon of honey and a dash of lemon juice.  (Don’t use hot water because it will cook the egg.) Stir together with a whisk or fork.  Wet your hair, then work the mixture into your hair and let it remain for about 5 to 10 minutes.  Rinse the egg shampoo out of your hair with warm water. Because of the protein content in the egg it is beneficial for damaged and distressed hair.  The egg whites contain albumen which cleans the hair and the yolk contains fat that conditions the hair.

3. If you have ever wondered how to get rid of the bitter aftertaste of coffee try this idea.  Add a few eggshells to your coffee grounds during the brewing.  This will get rid of the bitter or acidic aftertaste and it will act as a natural sweetener.

4. If your out of band-aids and a cut on your finger try using eggs for a natural band-aid.  You can hard boil the egg and use the thin clear film that is between the egg and the shell as a band-aid.  It will apply pressure to the cut to stop bleeding and also provide nutrients that help prevent scarring.  Don’t have time to hard boil the egg then try this idea, whisk an egg white until its frothy.  Then, dab the frothy egg white onto the cut area.  It will quickly dry and leave behind a nice protective layer like liquid Band-Aids.

5. Create edible paint by adding a tablespoon of  water with an egg yolk and your choice of food coloring.  You can use this to paint cookies and cakes.  You can also use this to paint on paper however it takes quite a bit of time to dry.

6. Protein from eggs can also be great for the skin.  Egg white masks are great to treat wrinkles and acne as well as reduce puffiness from the eyes and tighten pores.  Just whisk an egg white and using your fingers spread across your face.  Wait about 10 minutes and wash it off with cool water.  You may need a wash cloth as well.    Egg yolk masks can moisturize your skin, heal blemishes and soften the skin.  Just lightly whisk egg yolks and apply to your face using your fingers.  Allow it to sit for 20 minutes and then rise it with lukewarm water and a wash cloth.

7. It is always upsetting when those new leather shoes or jacket get dirty.  Try whisking up some egg whites and clean them with the frothy whites.  The egg white froth will pull the debris away from the leather, leaving it nice and clean.

8.  Are snails and slugs eating the leaves of your plants?  Scatter some crushed up eggshells on the surrounding areas and the leaves of the plants and the small pests will stay away from the area.  Also adding some eggshells to the plants soil will promote growth, especially during the earlier stages.  The calcium in the egg shells will also strengthen small plants before you transfer them to the garden outside.

9.  Poke a hole in one end of the eggs hell with a pin and drain out the egg white and yolk.  Once it is fully drained you can paint the egg shell.  These can make beautiful one of a kind Christmas ornaments.
