SCIENCE INVESTIGATION: Which liquid does the most damage to eggshells?
Six hard-boiled eggs were put in 6 different liquids-water, milk, orange juice, cola, energy drink and vinegar to see if they had any effect on the eggshells. The acidity of the vinegar actually stripped away the eggshell, the cola and energy drink stained the eggshell, the orange juice dissolved the surface of the eggshell which could be scratched away and only the water and milk had no effect on the eggshell. The whole point of the experiment was to show that both milk and water are a healthy option for teeth.
