Must I use the Brinsea cleaner with my incubator?

    I just wonder if it's really necessary, or if they are just a marketing genius.

    I have successfully used a 10-1 bleach solution for cleaning.....and that's a common cleaner in medical offices. It seems if that's good enough for these needs, it's good enough for my incubator!

    What do you guys all use?

    I use it because I bought it when I first entered this incubitis stage. But 10:1 bleach solution is perfect. When I run out of the Brinsea concentrate, I'll use bleach.

    I use bleach all of the time.

    Thanks, guys! I couldn't imagine why bleach wouldn't be good, but I thought I'd better ask to be sure!

    Sometimes I use Lysol or kitchen soap too.
