How to clean eggs

post #1 of 5

Hi everyone. I was wondering how everyone cleans their eggs after they collect them?

I have read that it's best not to wash them until just before you cook them to keep the bloom intact. The bloom protects the eggs from bacteria if I remember correctly. I put my eggs right in the fridge. They are usually clean, occasionally one will have a bit of dirt or stool on it. In that case I wipe it off or quickly run it under water when I'm ready to use it.

Ok. I don't wash them. But I would like to start selling eggs. I just assume people don't want poop spots on their eggs lol. I for one don't care if they are my own

I am pretty sure esome of our hens sleep in the boxes deputes having multiple roosts. We clean the nesting boxes daily so I am not sure what else to do

I put them straight into the fridge without washing them. The night before I sell them I wash them with warm water, dry them with a towel then put them into cartons and back in the fridge. Not washing them and refrigerating them will kept them the freshest the longest. But people who buy them do expect them to be clean.
