    This is probably a dumb question but how do you guys clean your bator after a hatch in anticipation for the next! ?

    I used vinegar and water .. Cleaned real easy and doesnt seem as harsh to me as bleach .. either way rinse VERY well and allow p[lenty of time to dry and air out..

    Bleach and water, rinse well, wash with dish detergent solution, rinse again, leave in the sun for a few hours if possible.

    Diluted hospital grade Lysol (I have a respiratory reaction to bleach)
    Rinse well
    Vinegar rinse
    Air dry... in the sun if I can
    I put the plastic egg trays through the dishwasher.
    I run my shelf liners through the laundry.
