Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods to ever exist. And they’re not just good for the body. They have many benefits for your hair and skin too.

Nevertheless, eggs can be a little annoying. They tend to leave behind an off-putting eggy smell on any utensil that comes into contact with them. Sometimes that smell doesn’t come off easily. It lingers for days and it can be quite gross when the smell hits you just when you thought you were using a clean, fresh utensil.

You might need that extra touch to eliminate that smell and this is how.

1. Heat up some water

Cold water and soap isn’t always effective in clearing the smell of raw egg. What you can do is use hot water and you’ll have super clean utensils without any lingering smells. Heat up some soapy water in the utensil or even soak the utensils in the hot soapy water. You’ll definitely have fresh utensils by the time you’re done.

2. Vinegar

Vinegar isn’t only for your salad. It does a great job in dealing with the eggy utensils swiftly. Pour some vinegar into the utensil and swirl it around so that all areas are covered with the vinegar. Let the utensil soak for a few minutes then wash.

3. Lemons

Lemons are known to eliminate stubborn smells around the kitchen. You can use them to deodorize the fridge, the microwave and in this case, the stubborn egg smell from utensils. Squeeze some of the juice onto a cloth and wipe the utensil down. Let the juice settle for a few minutes then rinse it as usual.

The second way to eliminate the smell is by boiling the lemon peels in the utensil. This will get rid of the smell and disinfect the utensil at the same time.

4. Orange peels

Similar to lemons, orange peels can be used for the same purpose. They work best when you boil the peels in the pot or pan that smells like an egg. Once you’re done, just rinse and the smell is all gone

5. Baking soda

A Baking soda solution will also work well. The best way to do this is by preparing a mixture of some baking soda and water then dip the utensils in the solution. Let them sit in the solution for a few minutes and wash them once again with soap and water.

5. Gram flour

Wash the dish with soap and water then take some gram flour and rub it on the utensil. Ensure that all the areas are covered for best results. Let the flour settle on the utensil for a couple of minutes then rinse well.

5. Tea leaves

Yes, you read that right. You can soak some tea leaves in water or get some previously used tea leaves for this method. Drain the water if you’ve just soaked them and spread the pulp on the utensil. Cover all the affected areas and rub it in for a few minutes. Follow up by washing with soap and water.

6. Coffee brew

Although you won’t be drinking any coffee this time round, you’ll have cleared any unpleasant smells off your dishes. Put a few spoons of coffee in water and heat the mixture for a few minutes. Pour the coffee into the smelly utensil and let it settle for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash with soap and water when done. Or, you can soak some coffee in water for a few minutes and rub the mixture in the utensil. Rinse when done.

7. Sun drying

Another effective option is to sun-dry your utensils. The rays will kill any bacteria and deodorize your utensils as well. This is a simple and effective way to get rid of that eggy residue.
