    I picked up a few of the foamy type shelf liners today I've seen some of you using for hatching. Do you do a bleach soak to disinfect them and let them dry before use? Between uses? I'd like to quickly pop one in under the carton that has the Serama eggs in it. Thanks![​IMG]

    Bleach soak, then into the washing machine. [​IMG] Just don't dry them in the dryer... they'll start to melt! LOL!
