5 Ways to Use Eggs Outside of the Kitchen

Make a facial
Who has time or money to spend at the local day spa, paying someone to tell you how awful your skin looks? For a little pampering, head to the refrigerator and grab an egg. If you have dry skin that needs moisturizing, separate the egg and beat the yolk. Oily skin takes the egg white, to which a bit of lemon or honey can be added. For normal skin, use the entire egg. Apply the beaten egg, relax and wait 30 minutes, then rinse. You’ll love your new fresh face.

Extraordinary Uses for EggsPhoto credit: Clipart.comFrom the bathroom to the garden, eggs' handy uses continue to surprise.

Use as glue
Out of regular white glue? Egg whites can act as a glue substitute when gluing paper or light cardboard together.

Add to compost
Eggshells are a great addition to your compost because they are rich in calcium — a nutrient that helps plants. Crushing them before you put them in your compost heap will help them break down faster.

Water your plants
After boiling eggs, don’t pour the water down the drain. Instead, let it cool; then water plants with the nutrient-filled water.

Start seeds
Plant seeds in eggshells. Place the eggshell halves in the carton, fill each with soil, and press seeds inside. The seeds will draw extra nutrients from the eggshells. Once the seedlings are about 3 inches (7.5 centimeters) tall, they are ready to be transplanted into your garden. Remove them from the shell before you put them in the ground. Then crush the eggshells and put them in your compost or plant them in your garden.
