After all the eggs are hatched what do you clean the bator out with. Anything special?
use a tiny amount of Dawn and some warm water and a rag. let air dry.
I use bleach and warm water. I read some place that you shouldn't use soap.
I scrub with plenty of water, then spray with a diluted bleach solution and let dry out in the sun. I just wipe the top off with a paper towel dampened in the same bleach solution. There are specialty incubator sanitizers you can buy from the poultry supply places, but I've never gotten around to ordering any...I'm a big bleach fan. It's the only chemical I use around the house/farm.
The instructions on mine says just to swish around some dish soap and not to scrub. Its styrofoam though so it's pretty delicate.
I combine Dawn dishwashing liquid, a weak solution of beach, hot water....soak,wipe, rinse well, dry and leave out in the sun all day..The top I just wipe with a rinsed out rag of the above combination and dry well...
Thank you. I will clean it today, the sun is shining.
