    Buy the cure from the store and follow the directions. You can add a number of other things such as Borax, garlic oil, WD-40 or beaver urine, but the stuff in the commercial stuff works well.

    Magic question
    Commercial stuff I think is roughly 50% sodium sulfite (food preservative)/ 50% salt.
    Dye added to make eggs bright, which is good in murky water for visibility.

    So many other secrets added & each has their own.
    I add anise extract (licorice flavoring) for king eggs because I was told by several on the Kenai that that's one of the trade secrets. Find it at the grocery store in little bottles. Maybe kings like licorice . Few drops mixed in the eggs a few minutes before fishing with them.

    Seems to me, Silvers don't care, See'm eat'm.

    I like it (commercial mix) because they are not a sticky when handling them & they hold the color well. If : Like 9601 said, you follow the instructions.

    I got a bag of sulfite years ago & mix it together with salt. I bought some dye to add.
    I like it best, but lots of opinions out their.

    Thumbs up Egg Cure Book

    Buy Scott Haugens book on egg cures.
    Dozens of reciepes to try. Find some that sound good to you and try them out. By following his directions you can't go wrong.
    http://www.scotthaugen.com
    Procure also has a video on egg curing. Has some good info in it.
    I usually buy commercial cure and add something extra to it.
    Make up at least a couple of different receipes before you go so you have some variety.

    Is it legal to cure eggs with WD-40. Just wondering, I heard rumor that you couldn't use it.

    I don't know. I only use the store bought stuff. I just listed a bunch of things I've heard of people using (except for the beaver urine, I just made that up).
