    Hello everyone, I haven't been here in awhile and have set the chicken and egg hatching aside while taking care of the new baby. I don't know if anyone remembers me? Anyway the baby is 16 mths. old now and the older kids and me are getting desperate to get the chickens and garden going again. I took the incubator down (hovabator) and it needs a good cleaning. I was wondering what is the best way to clean it, Can I use bleach, mild dish soap?????? It has a funky odor so a simple rinse I doubt will be enough. Thanks in advance

    A little white vinegar and sunshine works wonders on the funky odors also.

    I bleach with a light bleach/water mixture; then air dry, the odor goes away with this method, too.

    After I bleach it, I make sure to rinse everything, too.
