If you drop a raw egg on the floor, simply cover it with salt. Let it stand for a few minutes and it will solidify, making it easy to clean up.

As everyone well knows, it is almost impossible to clean up an egg that has dropped to the floor and broken. I heard this tip on TV once and then next time I dropped an egg I tried it and it actually worked. The tip: When you drop an egg on the floor, first pick up as much of the shell as you can, then sprinkle a generous amount of salt over the egg, totally covering it and let it set for a bit, usually ten minutes or so and then go back and wipe up with paper towel. Be sure that the egg is totally covered so as to help congeal it, otherwise you will still be left with some of the egg on the floor.
For a broken egg on the floor, sprinkle it generously with salt before pushing it on to a dust pan.
