"Eggstra Whitening" science fair project

01/15/2008

Question:

I am doing a science fair project on which toothpaste will whiten an egg the best. What would you suggest for the eggs? Should I use white eggs or brown? And why?

Answer:

I would suggest brown eggs because they are already "stained".  If you used white eggs, you would have to stain them yourself such as soaking them in tea.  The brown eggs will work just fine.
