What to clean an incubator with?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What in the world is safe to clean and disinfect an incubator? I've read formaldehyde but ummmm.... don't really keep that around. Will diluted Clorox be ok? Any help would be greatly appreciated! ūüėĀ

Yeah, you could use diluted bleach, I think. Oxine would be better, diluted with water.

Use what you have.  Bleach kills all pathogens, is cheap and readily available.  I wash well with soap, then use 1/10 bleach solution, rinse well, and air dry.  I never use scented bleach.
