Eggshells can be useful too. Check out these surprising eggshell uses to make sure you make the best use of those shells that you throw away.
Most of an eggshell is calcium. In fact, about 95% of shells are calcium carbonate. Here’s a list of what you can do with those shells so the calcium and its brittle shell don’t go to waste.
1. Nourishing Face Mask
Pulverize dried egg shells with a mortar and pestle, then whisk the powder in with an egg white and use this as a healthful, skin-tightening facial. Allow the face mask to dry before rinsing it off.
2. Garden Fertilizer
Eggshells are rich in calcium and other minerals that can help your garden thrive. Crush eggshells into tiny pieces and sprinkle them into each hole before planting. Then, sprinkle additional shells around the base of your plants every two weeks. You can read more about eggshell uses in garden here.
