All you need to do is add a 1/2 teaspoon of the kitchen staple to a quart of water, then boil your eggs like you normally would.
It turns out boiling your eggs with baking soda in the pot of water can actually make the shell easier to peel.

To try it out for yourself, all you need to do is add a 1/2 teaspoon of the kitchen staple to a quart of water, then boil your eggs like you normally would.

Basically, you'll be out of the kitchen in record time...and will no longer live in fear of taking a big bite of crunchy leftover shell. As if you needed another reason to stock up on the multi-tasking superstar, here you go.
