Kitchen Tip: Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

Just tried something I found on Pinterest the other day. When you are making hard boiled eggs, add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda to the water. Apparently, doing so changes the PH level, so the shells won't stick to the eggs when you peel them. I tried five eggs this morning, and the shells were all very easy to peel except one of them (not sure why). I had no idea! Give this a try.


  1. I am sooo trying this Kip. I LIVE on hard boiled eggs, Love! I was aware of your other good tip for the brown sugar. Keep em coming.

  2. Thanks, Christina! I hope it works for you. I've only tried it once so far, but it seemed to work for me. Good luck.
