    Is there a less expensive home remedy for disinfecting an incubator as opposed to purchasing a special brand from a
    poultry supplier? wouldnt clorox mixed with water work? wouldnt the clorox evaporate after a few minutes anyway?
    thanks

    Yes, bleach is a good sanitizer as long as it is well dried before putting eggs in the bator. A typical sanitizing solution is 1-2 Tablespoons of household bleach to 1 gallon water.
