Eggs are a great source of protein, but did you know that they can do more than provide sustenance? Take a look at some wacky yet helpful ideas from Instructables:

  1. Beauty Product: eggs can have many functions in your beauty routine. For example:
    • Beat a couple of eggs with a bit of olive oil and apply to your hair. Add a couple of drops of scented oil if you don’t want to smell like eggs. Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water.
    • Wisk together a couple of egg whites with a bit of water and wash over your face. This mixture works as a soothing, anti-aging cleaner that will smooth your skin.
    • Wisk together yolks and some water and wash your face for some serious moisture.
  2. Glue Substitute: since egg whites are pretty sticky when they dry, you can use them as a substitute for Elmers glue in a pinch.
  3. Cleaning Product:

    Egg whites’ thick and sticky base easily removes dirt from your leather shoes. Or bag. Or wallet. Anything leather, really. Gently scrub the whites into your dirty leather, and wipe off with a damp cloth. The egg will also form a protective base covering on your leather, which gives it shine!
