    First, i would take a new clean toothbrush and gently brush off the dirt.
    I would get some brinsea incubation disinfectant, and dip the eggs, I think for 30seconds. Then let it dry.

    You dip the eggs into the disinfectant, that is what it is for. I wouldnt put dirty eggs into my incubator without dipping them. You only dip, do not rub the eggs, let them dry. If you dont rub, it shouldnt take the oils off.

    I don't put dirty eggs in. It's not worth the risk to the rest of the eggs.
