The other day I was making breakfast and accidently dropped an egg on the floor. Of course it splattered all over and made a terrible mess. As I turned to my spice cabinet it occurred to me that I should share this nifty little trick.
The next time you drop an egg grab the salt.
Pour a substantial amount of salt all over the whole thing.
The worst part about trying to clean up a broken egg is the way it ends up running all over the place. The salt will cause the egg to clump up.
That will prevent the running and make it infinitely easier to pick up.
You will end up with some stray salt which cleans up easily with a damp paper towel. Of course, the whole area will still need to be disinfected afterward.
