Anyway, I've been using another method to keep eggs fresh longer, since storebought eggs are more "precious" and don't get used as freely as the ones from my own coop.
I've been coating these with cooking oil. Just pour a small amount in your hand, and roll the egg around until it's coated, then set it on a kitchen towel to "dry". This seals the pores and keeps air from penetrating the shell, keeping the egg fresher longer.
You could also do this with melted beeswax (although you might not want to pour it into your hands to do so!)
This is a very simple method, quick and easy and inexpensive, and it really does extend the freshness of the eggs.
