15 Amazing Uses Of Eggshells In Your Home And Garden

#11 Homemade Eggshell Toothpaste

Eggshells are similar to our own teeth. So, it is great to make a very fine eggshell powder toothpaste to brush our pearly whites, holding cavities at bay.

#12 Make An Eggshell Face Mask

To nourish and tighten your skin: crush your dried eggshells in a mortar and pestle to make a fine powder. Then whisk an egg white till it is somewhat stiff and add the eggshell powder. Spread it over your face and allow it to dry. Wash the mask off with cold water and enjoy your free facial treatment.

#13 Whiten Your Laundry

If your whites are not so bright as they used to be and chlorine is a no-go in your natural laundry routine, you can try the method of putting eggshells into a tightly woven bag (or old stocking) with a few slices of lemon.

#14 Scrub Your Tough-to-clean Pots

You can crush a few eggshells into a dirty pot, along with soap and hot water to get it clean. The shells will break up and remove the dirt as they are wonderfully abrasive. You can use crushed eggshells in hard-to-clean vases as well for a more glistening glass surface.

#15 Eat Your Eggshells

Have you ever tried to eat eggshells yet? Powder them finely and add to juices, smoothies, soups, and stews. Half an eggshell a day that will cover your basic calcium needs, but more than that is unnecessary.
