Egg Stripper Multi-Egg Shell Peeler, $20, HSN
Who doesn't love a good hard-boiled egg? With the invention of the Egg Stripper by Polish deli owner Ania Gifford, you can remove egg shells in a mere 10 seconds. All you have to do is place up to five eggs inside the device with a little bit of water, and shake it like a maraca. Five seconds later, the eggs will be jumping out of their shells.

It is now possible to wash your rugs in a washing machine. This two-piece item has "patented Cling Effect Technology" with its extra rug cover you can slip off the base. This winter white rug, among the many Ruggable options, is a great fit in a home with kids or pets running around.
