I didn't see any place to really put this on the forum so I came here. I am the biggest klutz! My hubby keeps telling me 2 things you should never do in life work in a glass factory or around eggs! Well this is what I taught myself to keep from breaking anymore eggs while washing them. Place the egg in the palm of your hand and wash one side at a time. Never hold the egg in your fingers! They get real slippery! And when gathering your eggs this winter put gloves on! When my hands get cold they don't work right! MAke sure you have a firm grip on the egg before lifting out of nest! Because if you don't you might bump your elbow when placing it in the basket and break more than one egg! Good thing my girls like scrambled eggs~! Just thought I would share!
