    I wash my eggs with warm water and pick all the debri off of them. I left today's washed eggs on the counter for around 4 hrs. Will these still be safe to eat?

    Yes, they will be fine unless they were in the sun and very hot all that time.

    Once you wash the bloom off, the eggs are unprotected and should be refrigerated. Unwashed eggs can stay fresh at room temp for over 2 weeks.

    2 weeks and the eggs should be stored in a cool place

    Unwashed refrigerated can last for well over 3 months.
