What the Expert Says:

The first respondent got it right. You have to make the water more buoyant, like ocean water, by dissolving salt into it.

1
Fill up a glass halfway with cold water from the tap.

2
Choose a raw, uncooked egg with no visible cracks in the shell. Place the egg gently into the water.

3
Watch as the egg sinks to the bottom of the glass. The egg sinks because it is more dense than the water.

4
Add a tbsp. of salt to the water. Stir the water to help the salt dissolve and distribute throughout the glass of water.

5
Add more salt if you need to. Add a tbsp. at a time, until you get a reaction.

6
Watch as the egg begins to float in the water when you have added enough salt.
