To neutralise the smell of boiling eggs a mum named, Natasha, simply added a few teaspoons of white distilled vinegar into the water
A mum named, Natasha, tour du lich simply added a few teaspoons of white distilled vinegar into the water when boiling eggs and it neutralised the smell.
According to culinary scientist Jessica Gavin, boiling eggs releases the iron in the yolk while the whites release sulfur and hydrogen that causes the smell to occur.
