Good morning all..........
I am looking for any cleaning tips for my Genesis 1588. I just got it a few weeks ago to catch the overflow from the cabinet and use as hatcher. So hatched my first batch of chicks in it yesterday, took the plastic tray out and gently washed it, I am afraid to break it and a pain in the butt to clean the water chambers.... I used a bottle brush.
Are any of you putting something down over the screen to help prevent the sludge in the water chambers ?
Any advice is appreciated.... I have the Brinsea ECO 20, I use that to hatch in and it is so simple to clean, just does not hold enough eggs.
I soak mine in hot water with Oxy Clean and a little dish soap, then gently scrub it with a paper towel. I disinfect after with Accel-TB, a peroxide-based disinfectant that is effective against pretty much everything (killing TB is considered the gold standard for disinfectants). Since it is perixide based, it is completely safe and has no dangerous residue or withdrawal time. It comes in a very convenient wipe, as well as a solution.
