I'm sure this has been discussed at one point or the other and some don't even bother to wash them. I'm still interested to hear what washing methods are being used. Right now I put them into a bowl with warm water and add a drop of dish washing liquid to it. I let it sit for one minute and wash it off using a tooth brush where needed. I have seen cleaning buckets with an air compressor on it. I could probably build one like that with an aquarium air pump and some air stones on a smaller scale. Wonder if a water pump would do the same. Circulating the water around the eggs. What about the commercial cleaners. They come in liquid and powder forms. Are they any good or worse the expense? I have not tried bleach yet, because I fear that the smell may be effecting the taste. Anyway, just curious and we may plan on selling eggs down the road at which point I will need to wash them.
