Is it dangerous to use soap? Does anyone know the proper egg washing routine?
I use soap to wash my eating eggs, not my hatching eggs.
I use a wet papertowel unless they are really dirty. I usually put them in the frig and if they are still ucky then I wash them immediatly before I use them but just with water and a sponge. Good luck!!
I don't know about raw eggs and soap, but... one day I had boiled some eggs, had the pan in the sink with the eggs cooling, accidently spilled just a drop of soap in the water with the eggs, the water was still a bit warm. I quickly dumped the water out,
but the eggs still tasted soapy when they were peeled.
Thank you for the advice everyone. I just want to make sure no chemicals are getting into my eating eggs.
I scrub them with a soapy sponge, and they dont taste like soap.
Can you use dawn dish soap to wash dirty eggs
I suppose you could, but your egg might taste a bit soapy. We just use a wet paper towel to wash eggs and it works great! But I guess you could use either, I just probably wouldn't use soap on a hatching egg.
Not unless you want your eggs to taste like soap. The bloom will protect the inside of the egg from bacteria, as long as you don't wash the bloom off. Before you use the egg, just rinse it thoroughly with hot water.
This is my routine. I use the scouring pad sponges. (about 1/4" x 4" x 6") Cut each one in 1/4's. I only wash eggs as needed, using warm water, and scrubby pad with a drop of soap. Eggs are then dried and refrigerated. Never have a soapy taste. Clean eggs go into fridge with no washing. I never wash hatching eggs, but am sure to choose the cleanest ones. Hopefully, I don't collect hatching eggs on a rainy day!
