How to blow eggs

At Easter, everyone is looking for new ideas to decorate their eggs in the most beautiful way possible. Do you want your pens to last longer or you want to use their inside for some Easter delicacies, blow the eggs out and decorate as desired. Eggs decorated like this will be able to last a long time and are ideal for a gift. You won't have to worry about how long they last and whether they may have broken down in the meantime since we all know eggs are a delicate, fast-breaking food item. See below for the easiest and safest way to blow eggs.

Since eggs, along with chicken, are the biggest source of salmonella, you should always be careful. Before you start blowing an egg, you must disinfect it well with alcohol or wash it. If you do not have alcohol, the dishwasher will be great for you to gently rub in the egg and rinse. After that, dry the egg well, or wipe it with a paper towel.

Take a needle or pin and gently puncture the lower and upper end of the egg with it. Be careful not to crack the egg shell. When you have punctured small holes, the hole in the bottom of the egg needs to be slightly expanded with a toothpick to make it easier for the egg to escape from the shell when it is blown out. With a toothpick, gently swivel inwards and circle until the hole widens slightly.


When everything is ready, use your index finger and thumb to grasp the egg by closing the holes and shake the egg well to merge its contents, that is, when the egg yolk breaks down. This will make it easier to blow an egg because it will be liquid. If you feel a little egg has come out, rinse and wipe it well before blowing it.

Prepare a bowl to blow the egg into. The egg is blown through a smaller hole and very strongly, and its contents come out through a larger hole. Smoke until all contents are released.

When you've blown all your content, Rinse the egg again and so that water enters it. Turn the larger hole of the egg toward the jet of water to make it easier to get into the egg. This will ensure that you have thoroughly rinsed all the contents from the egg. When the egg has filled with water, drain it and then refill the egg with water and repeat. This process needs to be done until clean water comes out of the egg.


When you notice that the water coming out of the egg is no longer cloudy or yellow, the egg is ready to decorate. Before that, just dry it well to give it a good grip.

Easter eggs are a nice Easter table decoration, and their only drawback is that they are perishable quickly. If you blow them and then paint them as you like, will be able to last a very long time, up to several years. After Easter you can save and remove them next year. They are an effective decoration that does not fade and lasts until you want to create new ones.
