Egg shells – uses

Save your egg shells in a container until you have several collected.  Then add water and allow them to soak for a few days.  Your water will become cloudy with lime from the shells.  This water is great to use for watering your plants since it has protein and lime mineral.

They can also be crushed and used as drainage in the base of your planters and flower pots.  They also make good bulk in your potting soil to keep it loose and emit nutrients into the soil.  Since it is a “base” it will help neutralize the acid in your soil if it becomes acidic.

They can also be added to your compost pile.
