Very Surprising Uses For Eggshells
If you eat a lot of eggs chances are you have thrown away thousands and thousands of egg shells over your lifetime. Don’t worry, I have too. I am gardening very seriously this year and part of that means using all natural processes and ingredients as much as possible.
I did some research and have compiled the top yet very surprising uses for egg shells that can help you not only in your garden but for your home too. I think you will be very surprised as to what old egg shells can help you with.
With out further ado…
#1 Make A Powerful And Natural Abrasive Cleaner
