i have read that you can wash chicken and duck eggs with water and baking soda. after they dry you can lightly coat them with a rag and some olive oil to mimick the natural bloom. has anyone heard of this?

there are many different ways people wash their eggs, I personally haven't heard the baking soda and olive oil one, I just simply collect my eggs and place them in cartons and in the fridge, sometimes they sit a day or two on the counter, when I am ready to sell them or consume I wash them up and that is it.

I hope this helps.

I get a warm rag and wash mine, if they have abunch of junk ( poo, hay, etc ) then I sometimes soak them in warm water and then scrub on them somemore.

All my eggs turn out soft to the touch, and of course clean.
