How do you clean your eggs?

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
I bring mine in and wash them with soap and hot water. I was told that it was "disgusting" and doesn't get all the germs off. Psh. My eggs are clean and Yummy! People are so cruel Ames lack basic knowledge in need to survive. So, how do you clean your eggies!?

I sell my eggs, so I use an egg wash from TSC. It's called Manna Pro Egg Wash.

Well, I must be really disgusting, because I don't wash them at all.  My four pullets don't foul their nest, and the eggs are perfectly clean coming out of the nest, so they go straight to the refrigerator.

 

I suppose if I were to ramp up and start selling eggs, I would have to find some sort of cleaning method, but for personal consumption, I have no intention of washing away nature's protection.

I also wash my eggs with hot water and soap to avoid any type of salmonella but I would do the same for veggies that grow on the ground in my garden.  Someone told me the other day they were afraid to eat my eggs because they were unpasteurized. Since I am fairly new to having chickens/eggs I googled unpasteurized eggs and everything I could find said that eggs you buy in supermarkets aren't pasteurized either.  Has anyone else heard of this?

That is something I was just editing my last post to include. If it is not dirty by the wet droppings I just pop them in the fridge. I hate to wash off the bloom if I dont have to .

I don't wash eggs for personal consumption.

 

For my customers, I collect the eggs, put them in a big bowl and soak them in warm water for about 5 minutes then rinse and wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel.

I am disgusting too..lol!  I take the eggs right from the nest and they go right in my basket on the kitchen counter.  Unless an egg is dirty, I do nothing but crack em' open, cook em' and eat em'!!!!! ~Beulah
