Separating Egg Whites and Egg Yolks

Separating Egg Whites and Egg Yolks

A simple and quick method to remove the yolk from the white of an egg for your favorite recipes

When a recipe calls for egg whites, you might want to freak out. If you’re running short on time, you don’t have the patience and time necessary to separate that pesky yolk from the egg white. Not to worry, because Steve has found a way to pull the yolk right out of the egg white. It’s quick, easy, and a little fun.


  • Egg (or two, or three)
  • Empty plastic water bottle
  • Bowls or plates


  1. Crack an egg into a bowl or plate. Be careful not to break the yolk when cracking the egg.

  1. In your hand, lightly squeeze an empty plastic water bottle. You don’t want to compress the water bottle all of the way.


  1. Hold the water bottle in the squeezed position. Don’t release it.

14. Touch the mouth of the water bottle to the egg yolk and slowly release the squeeze on the bottle.

35. The egg yolk is pushed right into the bottle, leaving the egg white!


Take It Further!
If you want to use this tool for more than recipes in your home, turn it into a literature connection. Separate the yolk from the egg white and add green food coloring to the egg white. Replace the egg yolk and voila… now you have real green eggs to use while reading Green Eggs and Ham to your students.


How does it work?

When you squeeze the bottle, you are decreasing the air inside. If you squeeze the bottle while the mouth is facing towards you, you’ll feel air rush out. Releasing the squeeze on the bottle allows air to rush back into the bottle. If you cover the mouth of the bottle with the egg yolk prior to releasing the squeeze, the available volume inside the bottle is filled by the egg yolk. The egg yolk separates easily from the egg white because of their differing viscosity. While the egg white is runny and slimy, the yolk is more solid, enabling the entire yolk to enter the bottle while the egg white runs off onto the plate or bowl.

Intervention for Burns


intervention for burns


WOW!!! Real interesting! Something I did not know, could come in handy..

 I wish when my nephew was badly burned someone had known this.

 A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors ignited and engulfed him He jumped from his truck, screaming.

 His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs and a bowl yelling: “bring me some more eggs!”

 She broke them, separating the whites from the yolks.
The neighbor woman helped her to apply the whites onto the young man’s face.

 When the ambulance arrived and the EMTs saw the young man, they asked who had done this. Everyone pointed to the lady in charge.

 They congratulated her and said: “You have saved his face.”

 By the end of the summer, the young man brought the lady a bouquet of roses to thank her. His face was like a baby’s skin.
A Healing Miracle for Burns:

 Keep in mind this treatment of burns is being included in teaching beginner fireman. First Aid consists of first spraying cold water on the affected area until the heat is reduced which stops the continued burning of all layers of the skin. Then, spread the egg whites onto the affected area.

 One woman burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. In spite of the pain, she ran cold faucet water on her hand, separated 2 egg whites from the yolks, beat them slightly and dipped her hand in the solution. The whites then dried and formed a protective layer.

 She later learned that the egg white is a natural collagen and continued during at least one hour to apply layer upon layer of beaten egg white. By afternoon she no longer felt any pain and the next day there was hardly a trace of the burn. 10 days later, no trace was left at all and her skin had regained its normal color. The burned area was totally regenerated thanks to the collagen in the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins.

 Since this information could be helpful to everyone: Please share it!
