Should I clean a new incubator?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone,

 

My new 10 egg incubator came today! Should I disinfect it before putting my eggs in or will it be okay?

 

If so, how do I disinfect it (I don't have any special incubator disinfectant).

 

Many thanks :):):)

I would and run it a day or two to burn off any factory chemicals.  I just use bleach water in my bator.

I use diluted bleach as well. And I would go ahead and clean it (probably not necessary, but I would).
