How to clean your incubator:

Whatever you use, rinse it well and some people put it in the sun to dry. That might not be an option this time of year.
Again, Keep the electronics dry.

Someone in this thread recommends using peroxide.

I’m probably not going to set any eggs :hmm

The main reason being that I haven’t rehomed some of my chickens yet. I’ll still be following along for anyone who does!
