Ever made a dish with a bunch of eggs and wished there was something you could do with the eggshells besides throwing them away? Well, thanks to Stylelist, here are some things you can do with those shells!
Did you know that eggshells are predominately made of calcium carbonate — the active ingredient in lime — as well as other nutrients for plants? Eggshells make a great natural fertilizer of sorts. Whether you break the shells up and sprinkle them on top of a plant, or mix a few into potting soil, your plant will thank you.

Do you have a cup or travel mug that has been stained by your favorite warm beverage? Grind up some eggshells and drop them in the drinkware filled with warm water. Let it sit over night, and the egg shell will absorb the stain.
Remember how we said that egg shells make great fertilizer? Use egg shells to start seeds. Fill the egg shell half with soil and the seed, then plant directly into the ground (or into the pot). As the plant develops and the shell breaks down, it provides the seedling with plenty of nutrients.
