Uses For Water From Boiled Eggs

Ideas to recycle the water from boiling eggs from the ThriftyFun community.

Use To Clear a Drain

You could use the hot water in your drain. When I was a bartender years ago, we used to dump a bit of bleach in the drains followed by scalding water to keep the drain and pipes clear of build up. We did it then because slow melting ice would cause the drains to clog. If you have a dishwasher, you are using your sink a lot less. This is good to keep those drains clear.

Cook Noodles The Same Time

Next time, cook some noodles and add the eggs to the water while noodles are cooking. Then this nutrient enriched water wil also feed your plants when you water them with it.

Water Plants

I usually let it cool and then water my plants with it.

Note: Watering your plants with it is fine as long as it does not contain salt. Salt can harm your plants.
