Healthier Homestead Egg Wipes Review

I recently got to try out some wonderful little things called Healthier Homestead Egg Wipes.  These guys are used to wipe clean farm fresh eggs.  If you've ever lived on a farm and gathered eggs, you know they don't always come out of the nest boxes all nice and pretty.  In fact, a lot of the time they have all kinds of yucky stuff on them that we don't want to get in our food.  

These wipes are very easy to use. A bit about them from the website can be found below:

Natural plant-based formulation gently cleans the egg of soils after laying. One cloth cleans up to a dozen eggs depending on the soil level. Just wipe the egg with the soft biodegradable pop-up cloth. Dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. Store cleaned eggs in the refrigerator. Used cloths can be tossed in the compost bin.

These really are very simple to use. You get one out of the container. It has a nice flip top lid with a pop up dispenser. Gently wipe the egg clean and move on to the next one. If the eggs are very soiled you'll have to change your wipe sooner than once every dozen.

My oldest son Patrick gathers our eggs for us once daily when he does the chicken chores. One chicken chore is to take out the bucket of scraps for the chickens to eat. He then puts the eggs in this bucket which adds additional yuck to them if he didn't empty the bucket fully. I had been using hot soapy water and a soft scratch free pad to clean our eggs. Now with these simple easy to use wipes my two oldest girls take turns using the wipes to wipe off the eggs and place them in their egg cartons which go in our refrigerator. Since it's winter we're not getting a lot of eggs, but due to the soiling of the eggs we use one wipe per day on our eggs.

These great little egg wipes are manufactured by Dragonfly Organix. You can find them through their website and facebook. You can also find them through the Garden Guys. The Garden Guys also have a facebook and twitter pages.

  1. It's great to hear that the kids are helping out with daily farm chores.

    1. They also are in charge of feeding the baby lambs. Oh and Fionna's self proclaimed chore is to check on HER baby horsie daily. She's too cute! The baby horse of course is cute too.
