    LOL.. Thank goodness, thousands of years of broodies can now rest assured that their eggs can now be clean before they set on them. They have been worried for a while!

    I rather new to the land of chickens, but wouldn't it wipe the 'bloom' right off the egg potentially making it go bad? It's not like you wipe it off and stick it in the refrigerator. Anything to make a buck I guess!

    if you were cleaning eggs that you did not intend on incubating (lets say you only had hens), then this might be an option to wipe off poopy eggs before going into the refrigerator. Even then, a soaked towel with warm water works twice as good, and doesnt cost/waste anything. If your eggs have a little dirt on them, it doesnt matter much during hatching, if there is significant buildup, you can always GENTLY scratch them with a light grit sandpaper before you incubate them.. I have never had a problem resulting in the necessity of "egg wipes.."

    As 3 others have said, im gonna go tell my broody, she can now rest assured all her eggs will be clean and sanitary before going underneath her.. [​IMG]
