    I clean my incubator/hatcher in between hatches, but I dont take the top apart. There seems to be a lot of dust or dirt that has now gotten between the plastic which makes it hard to see. Can I somehow take it apart and clean it?

    I wonder if a spray of pressurized air would work. You know, they're used to clean computers and come in a can with a tiny hose straw thing to direst the air. I read this somewhere when reading up on cleaning my bator. BTW I hope to candle your eggs tonight. :)
