Use eggshell: in the garden, in household chores, for skin care, here's how to reuse this precious resource destined for waste.
Have you ever thought about the beneficial properties contained in egg shells? Even if it is a product destined to be thrown away, the eggshell can be a very useful resource for daily life.
When we cook eggs, most people immediately throw away the shell but in reality this "waste" can be re-evaluated. They can be excellent allies in the garden, in the kitchen and for body care. On this page we will show you some ways to reuse egg shells. Take note!
To strengthen the bones of our four-legged friends
An egg shell is composed of calcium carbonate, which is also the main ingredient of some antacids. Each eggshell of average size contains about 750-800 mg of calcium. Eggshells, therefore, can also be consumed by our pets instead of the calcium tablets that veterinarians generally prescribe to fortify their bones.
To bandage wounds
The shell membrane, that is the transparent film inside, can be used to stimulate the healing of cuts and scratches. Just apply it directly to the wound and leave it on for about 20 minutes
To fertilize the soil
It is possible to use egg shells to enrich the soil; in fact they are composed of 95% calcium carbonate. This substance guarantees optimal growth not only of the fruits but also of the flowers of the plants, making them grow even faster.
To eliminate pests in the garden
Eggshells can be used as a deterrent for small animals that love to infest the land, first of all snails and snails. Just sprinkle the ground with eggshells: these little animals will not pass over the sharp pieces of eggshell. Therefore, plants and flowers will be safe.
To strengthen tomato plants
Those who dedicate themselves to the cultivation of tomatoes know well that the plant needs special care to withstand the weight of the fruit. Expert gardeners recommend putting eggshells in the land where they plant the tomato, to make them stronger
For cleaning kitchen utensils
Eggshells can be used as abrasives against stains and encrustations. Just put the shell as whole as possible in the freezer and use it if necessary to clean the utensils. The next time you have to wash the pots, use egg shells to remove the food. The only recommendation is not to rub too vigorously so as not to leave indelible marks.
To make decorations
They can be transformed into Christmas decorations. Obviously you will need to be armed with patience and creativity to make some decorations
To strengthen the nails
Just crush a few egg shells until you get a powder and add a little glaze. This way they will strengthen themselves! A perfect remedy for those who have brittle nails and have trouble growing them.
To reduce wrinkles
Eggshells are very effective against wrinkles. Reduce a few egg shells to powder with the help of the mixer and transfer the powder into the trays to make ice cubes with water. When they are frozen, rub lightly on the face by practicing circular massages
To make a nourishing mask
Pulverize dried egg shells with a mortar. Pour the powder into a bowl and add an egg white and mix with a whisk until the mixture is homogeneous. Apply the mask on the face and leave it on for about 15 minutes then rinse with warm water
To whiten clothes
Apparently, egg shells would also have a strong whitening power. Just put some egg shells in a mesh bag inside the washing machine. The stains will disappear and the laundry will be shiny again.
To make candles
With the eggshell we can make some nice candles, just pour a little liquid wax and arrange a wick. The only recommendation is to open the egg carefully from the top and keep the rest to use it as the base of the candle.
