    Several methods I use....First clean right after a hatch...Outside, water, brush and diluted bleach solution.

    Then solar cleaning.. (Put in sunlight for about 4 days)

    Lastly a good spray light Lysol and back in the sun.

    Important - not getting wiring wet!

    Also, something to hold the incubator down when it's outside!

    Commercial disinfectant is also available but we prefer bleach.

    Hope this helps and have a blessed day.
     
  3. I always use a bleach solution diluted 10 to 1 .soak for about 15 mins , scrub til clean ,then rinse, dry in sun if its sunny . If not i just dry in the house .

    Hope that helps some .

    And don't it leave where free ranging chickens can get to it. [​IMG]
    You won't have a bator to worry about cleaning.
