Material Required:
A sink
Paper towels
White vinegar
A hard-boiled egg
A clean glass jar and lid

Instructions:
1. Place the hard-boiled egg in the glass jar.
2. Slowly pour in the white vinegar in the glass jar until the egg is completely covered.
3. Screw the lid on the jar tightly.
4. Let this sit for at least one week.
5. After a week has passed, drain the vinegar from the jar.
6. Dry the egg with a paper towel.

Wondering How?
The vinegar (acid) dissolves the eggshell and leaves you with a rubbery egg.
