Forget the age old debate of what came first, the chicken or the egg?
It’s time to focus on the many things you’re favorite breakfast food and baking ingredient can do in your home, garden, and even in your beauty regimen. Let’s get cracking on these eight amazing things you had no idea you could do with eggs…

According to the NaturalLivingIdeas.com, the average American eats about 200 eggs per year. However, what do they do with all of those eggshells? Throw them in the trash, or hopefully, the compost?

These slimy pests are put off by the abrasives of the shells and will go in search of easier garden eats elsewhere. And if deer are your garden’s folly, try scattering eggshells around your plants to deter wild munchers. Deer dislike the smell of albumin (in raw eggs) and will steer clear (just be careful eggshells don’t attack vermin).
