    Hi all. I'm at it again (already), got eggs coming that should be in shortly. I washed out the incubator after my last hatch, but I believe I'm supposed to disinfect it, right? How do I do that?

    Weak solution of bleach and dawn dishwashing liquid. soak the bottom, wire and the plastic well in the bath tub, rinse well and set in the sun to dry for a few hours. The top with the heating element just wipe down, clean rinse water, wipe and dry.
