    I have a home made hatcher out of styrofoam and it is not a smooth surface. What would be the best way to clean and disinfect it. I use that rubberized shelf liner for the eggs to hatch on, so i'm not too worried about cleaning, just the disinfecting. I was thinking maybe a bowl of bleach water with the hatcher turned on. Any help would be appreciated.

    Maybe mist with 10% bleach water then let sit and rinse with cold water.
    I've used the brinsea sanitizing solution and like it a lot because it doesn't have noxious odors, it seems a bit expensive but its very concentrated and a little goes a long way.
