    Hi guys-
    I just "inherited" a Hova-bator 1583 from a friend. It's been sitting in storage for a few years. I have it all set up, got it running properly but have noticed after running it for a bit, the inside needs to be cleaned. Does anyone have experience cleaning a hova-bator? What products should I use? if any?


    Thanks!

    Use some tek-trol to clean it and rinse well then air dry make sure it completely dry before you use. Hope this helps.:)

    In addition be careful scrubbing it, especially if it is older. There might be stains on it but that's to be expected with a used Hova-bator. The stains won't hurt as long as you disinfect it as stated above in the previous post.
