    Does anyone has a home "trick" how to clean the eggs other than buying the cleaning products available in the stores

    I use a damp paper towel and wipe them off.

    The Little Egg Scrubber Just Hatched

    Hello All,

    Our daughter has a few dozen chickens and started raising chickens over 5 years ago. At that time she had a dozen chickens and egg cleaning wasn't too bad. The second spring she got another dozen chickens and now the dirty eggs were starting to pile up. It's not much fun cleaning dozens of eggs a day. The next year she added another dozen and egg washing only got worse.

    So, we searched online and at our local farm and feed stores, but found no real egg cleaning solutions. None of the devices we did find worked well as a complete egg cleaner. You we still needed to inspect and rewash quite a few of the eggs. So, we decided to come up with an egg cleaning machine and it works quite well. "The Little Egg Scrubber“ is for the Backyard Egg Farmers.

    Yes, we know the Bloom or Cuticle is a special coating the female produces on her eggs to protect her eggs from bacteria and other harmful contaminants. The removal of the bloom is controversial, and there is much debate on the subject. There are no positive points to the removal of the bloom, but a dirty soiled egg is never a good thing and if any eggs do need to be cleaned, it will need to be refrigerated after it is cleaned.

    We hope you will check out our website and see for yourself the benefits of using out machine at www.TheLittleEggScrubber.com
