  15. 8. Carefully open the clip (or cut the cling film off right under the rubber band using scissors). Careful, the cling film is still hot so don’t burn your fingers. Then gently start peeling the cling film away from the poached egg white. This should go pretty fast if you greased the cling film well. Make sure the egg white doesn’t break.
