    Will rinsing the egg off in water also remove the bloom? I don't scrub, just dunked them quick. [​IMG]

    Yes, but not all of it. It is better to leave them be. Look under a broody hen and what do you see. It is not all that clean.m Nature has a way of taking care of thing like that.

    Was just asking. I rinsed them all to eat. LOL I don't want the extra flavor in there [​IMG]

    I use a sponge that has a fine sand paper feeling. From TSC. I just rub off any little dirty spots.[​IMG]
