– Raw Eggs – Household Vinegar – Jar/Vase

STEP 1:  Place an egg in the jar and cover with vinegar. You can color the vinegar for rainbow-colored rubber eggs too!

Step 2. Wait and watch! Notice the bubbles on the eggshell! This is the acid in the vinegar reacting with the calcium carbonate in the shell. 

STEP 3:  After 48 hours, remove the egg and rinse it off. Ours had a layer of brown scum that was easily washed away!
