What the Expert Says:

This is an easy one to try out yourself - you'll love the result. Put a raw egg into a jar filled with enough white vinegar to cover the egg. Leave for 3 days (in the fridge is what I do). Shake the jar gentle each day if you think about it. At the end of the period, pour off the vinegar and let the egg slip out onto a plate. Carefully pick it up and rub gently on the surface. Interesting, no? Think about what the egg shell is made up and what kind of liquid vinegar is.
