Boiled eggs can be peeled easily using a little water and your thumb. First, you need to find the egg's air pocket and the membrane.
- Wet the egg
Submerge the egg in a bowl of cold water, as this makes it easier to peel.
- Find the air pocket
Crack the end of the egg's shell with the back of a spoon. The air pocket is usually located on the wider end of the egg. Begin to peel away the top of the egg shell.
- Peel away the shell and membrane
Use your thumb to gently peel the shell away with the membrane attached.
