    Mix 1/4 to 1/2 cup of clorox in hot water. That's all you need.

    I use bleach water to wipe it down then let the sun dry it. Works great. [​IMG]

    Clorox hard surface spray works great after washing with soap and water.

    I use Peroixde. Rinse the incubator with hot water, mist it with peroxide and let it sit for 5 or 10 min. Then rinse and let dry.
