#3. Easy Egg Shell Removal

On the hunt for useful Easter hacks, we’ve discovered the secret to getting those pesky shells off easily! Add baking soda to your water when boiling the eggs to make the shells easy to remove. When the water with baking soda passes through the eggshell, it helps the albumen to separate from the shell.

Extra tip: refrigerate your eggs before adding them to the water. (NB The fresher the eggs, the more the shell is to stick).

Or try this egg in a glass of water trick!
