How To Wash A Fresh Egg

Learn a safe and easy way to clean your duck eggs.

Step 1

Turn on your faucet and run the water until it's warmer than the egg's temperature.

Pro Tip → Don't soak your eggs in a bowl of water.

Step 2

Gently rinse the egg under
the warm running water.

Pro Tip → Colder water creates
a suction in 
the shell's pores pulling bacteria in from the surface.

Step 3

Use a soft bristled brush for stubborn
bits and pieces. Don't use soap!

Pro Tip → The "bloom" is a protective
outer coating that helps keep bacteria
and moisture out.

or egg holder in the refrigerator.

egg age test to find out.
