I know this doesn't really belong in this forum, but I couldn't really find a place for it. What is the best way to wash eggs getting them clean without taking off any protective coating or anything that'll decrease shelf-life? I've just heard about how store-bought eggs are often washed with chlorine or something which ends up taking off a coating, though that's probably completely different. Someone even told me that in places like France, where the eggs are not required to be washed in chlorine, you can keep the eggs at room temperature and they'll stay good for a while. This leads me to my second question- about how long do home-grown eggs stay good? Any longer or shorter than store-bought eggs?
