No, it’s not a magic trick – yes, you can use an empty plastic bottle to separate an egg yolk from the white.
It’s much less messy than catching the yolk in your hand and a lot more reliable than cracking an egg and using the shell to filter the white out.
Plus, there’s a lot less chance you’ll break the yolk, and it’s an almost foolproof way to ensure no pesky little bits of shell end up with the yolk or white either.
Get ready to impress your family with this brilliant little life hack.
Step 1: Crack an egg into a bowl or jug
Step 2: Take a clean plastic bottle and place it over the yolk
Step 3: Squeeze the bottle and let it ‘suck up’ the yolk
Step 4: Squeeze out the yolk into a clean bowl or jug
