Did you whip up a bunch of scrambled eggs or frittatas for a crowd this morning? Don't toss the eggshells away. Rinse and allow the eggshells to air-dry first. For tough-to-clean things with a narrow opening -- like a dirty bottle or vase -- crush eggshells and put inside. Then add soapy warm water and shake; the shells will act as an abrasive to help the soapy water get the inside clean. You can also add dry and clean eggshells to your bird feeder; birds benefit from the natural calcium of the shells. And finally, the easiest: Eggshells are fully compostable and a great addition to your compost.
