    Hello Everyone,

    I don't know where to post this but i just assumed maybe the egglaying area [​IMG]
    Anyways, I had a question about eggs that i was washing. They were accidently left in a bucket of soapy water overnight, can we still eat these eggs?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    If you eat them right away they should be fine....

    Egg shells are porous...that is why when you boil them the sometimes have water inside the shell. Also....when you dye eggs for Easter sometimes dark colors will bleed to the inside of the egg and stain the white portion. The eggs are probably fine but yeah like Woodmort said they may taste a bit soapy. [​IMG]

    Quote:Soap is an excellent laxative---go ahead and eat them, let us know how things come out.
