According to State Police in Frackville, a Shenandoah man woke up Saturday morning to find the breakfast staple and the popular condiment garnishing his Mitsubishi Lancer.

Anyone who’s been the victim of an egging surely knows what a problem they can cause. It’s one of the most popular items used in vandalism.

Egg whites and yolks are extremely damaging as they’re acidic. Severe damage to painted surfaces caused by eggs begins almost immediately. And if you’re the victim of an egging, it’s best to get the egg residue off your vehicle as soon possible.

Even egg shells can chip the paint’s clear coat. Making things trickier is the fact that wiping eggs off your vehicle could cause more damage.

All this could lead to thousands of dollars in damages if the egg isn’t fully removed.
