Revive Indoor Plants With Eggshell Water

Posted: Updated:

For 20 years, Bruce Lubin and his wife Jeanne have been collecting tips and hints to save time, money, and make everyday tasks easier. Their book "Who Knew?"by TeleBrands includes thousands of money-saving secrets for cooking, cleaning and other tasks around your home.

As you move from room to room, you'll discover how to affordably clean your home using all-natural, homemade cleaners; get rid of any kind of stain on the planet; organize like a whiz; keep your car at its best; and perform simple household repairs. We are republishing a fabulous tip from the book on an easy way to revive your plants.

Give dying indoor plants a second change with this odd little treatment. Let three empty eggshells sit overnight in a couple of cups of water. (Multiply the amounts as needed.) Then use the eggshell water the next day when it's time to water the plants.
