    I have an R-Com 20. In the past I've just washed mine down with soap and water. Should I use something like a Lysol Disinfecting Wipe to make sure it is sanatized when I'm done. I don't have any incubator cleaner here - I live a long way from a big city.

    Soap an water is fine but if you still want to do more mix one part bleach to 10 parts water. That is the standard cleaning agent in the medical field.

    Quote:This is what I do myself. Soap if necessary. A thorough wiping out always. Then a wipe down with a bleach/water solution. Run empty for a few hours to dry everything out again.

    After running for three months continuously mine is really going to need it.
