Egg is one of the common food in most Nigerian households. However, it is a common thing for us to throw away our eggshell after taking its content (yolk and egg white). Little did we know that the eggshell we are throwing away can be used for other beneficial things.
So in this article, we would be taking a look at the 3 things you can use eggshells for.
1. As pain supplement
According to Healthline, eating grounded eggshells can help reduce joint pain and bone illnesses that occur as a result of hormonal changes in premenopausal and menopausal women.
Eggshells are rich in calcium carbonate, and when grounded into powder, they can be used as a calcium supplement to make bone stronger.
2. As Scouring Powder
Eggshells can also be grounded to form a scouring powder. This can be done by mixing the grounded shells with salt and detergent to form a household scouring powder for pots and kettles.
This also helps to reduce the cost of spending extra money on getting scouring powder, as you can easily make one in the comfort of your home.
3. Improve Garden Soil
The calcium from eggshells is also beneficial in garden soil, as it moderates soil acidity while providing nutrients for plants.
