Try standing an egg upright on a table, balancing the small end on its end – it’s not easy is it? And No you can’t crush it on one end of the egg. That is cheating.
The secret material we used is salt. If you sprinkle a little table salt where you are going to place the egg…. Hey presto! The egg stands up on its own.
The Salt crystals are very angular and cube like, so they don’t role out of the way. This makes them a good base for the egg to balance on! After the egg is standing up then lightly blow the extra salt from the base of the egg.
