    For the longest time I have used Brinseas Incubator disinfectant mixture...but lost the bottle. What can you all reccomend that I can find just around the house to use?

    I use a mix of bleach and water. I usually add about a half cup of bleach to a gallon of water then use it to rinse the bator.

    I use peroxide. I rinse the incubator with hot hot water. Then I mist the whole thing with peroxide. let it sit a while, and rinse off.
