Egging houses is a common trick that is played around Halloween. People may do this to get revenge, just for fun, or to play a joke on a friend. If the egg is not removed from your house, car, or other valuable item quickly, it can permanently damage it. One of the worst places to remove the egg is on a house rooftop, but removing it yourself can help save you money and give you the opportunity to check out your roof for any other problems. It is best to have someone helping you through this process.

Eggs can damage your house if not cleaned up quickly.

Step 1

Set up the ladder to safely climb to the roof of your house. Bring the hose and a garbage bag up with you, or have someone help by handing the items up to you.

Step 2

Set the water hose aside where it will not fall off the roof. Pick up the egg shells and put them in the garbage bag. Set the garbage bag aside in a safe place.

Step 3

Pick up the hose and have someone slowly turn on the water for you. Put your finger over the hose's mouth to make a strong pressure. Spray all the egg off the roof, and be sure to get off all the clear egg whites.

Step 4

Have your helper turn off the hose and carefully drop it to the ground. Climb down the ladder with the garbage bag.

Step 5

Soak old towels in a bucket filled with half warm water and half white vinegar. Let the towels soak a couple of minutes.

Step 6

Climb back up the ladder and lay the soaked towels over the spots where the eggs were splattered. Let the towels soak there for 10 to 15 minutes to get rid of all the stains.
