Q: Should I presoak my eggs or not?
A: Yes, Presoak*. Use enough warm water that is about 20˚F above room temperature that will covers the eggs. Add Enzyme Presoak to the warm water then add your eggs & soak 10 minutes. Eggs will clean up in about 15 seconds using The Little Egg Scrubber. Unsoaked or dry eggs take much longer, and will add excessive run time to The Little Egg Scrubber. Enzyme will not penetrate the shell. *Another effective method in place of presoaking your eggs, would be to slowly pour a partial bucket of very warm Enzyme Presoak Mixture over a basket of your eggs and let stand for several minutes and then repeat several times within 10 minutes, before cleaning with "The Little Egg Scrubber".
Q: How do I clean my egg scrubber?
A: To clean The Little Egg Scrubber, use about 3/4 of an inch of very warm soapy water in the sink, start the Scrubber. NEVER submerge the motor!

Q: Is this egg scrubbing machine safe to use in water?
A: The Little Egg Scrubber is designed to be safe used in water. The Little Egg Scrubber uses a 12V motor, run from a 12V 4 Amp Low Voltage Smart Power Supply and plugs into a 100~240VAC (US Style NEMA 5-15P Receptacle). It is NOT recommended to submerge the electric motor!
Q: Should I wash a cracked or broken egg with the Egg Scrubber?
A: NO! Never wash a cracked or broken egg with The Little Egg Scrubber! If an egg is cracked or broken, then the freshness and purity of the egg is in question and it should not be used. Always discard compromised eggs.
Q: What size is this scrubbing Machine?
A: The Little Egg Scrubber is 10" by 10" wide & 7" high. It's been designed so it can be used in a small kitchen sink. The 2 brushes are 8 inches long and they will hold 3 eggs at a time and wash 12 eggs a minute.
Q: Some of my egg won't tumble and scrub like my other eggs do, what should I do?
A: All eggs are NOT created Equal; some eggs may have an odd or irregular shape and some eggs may be too big or too small to fit the pockets design. Unfortunately if this happens, those egg will need to be hand washed.
The Little Egg Scrubber will wash eggs sizes Bantam/Pullet to X-Jumbo.
Q: Some eggs won’t scrub completely clean and some stains remain. What should I do?
A: If the egg won't scrub clean, even after presoaking your eggs, sometimes additional scrub time is necessary to achieve a clean stain free egg. Not all stains are removable by the scrubber. We highly recommend our NEW "Stain Remover Power Sponge” to get the perfect egg appearance you desire. Please see our Products page for more information.

We just did another batch of our neighbor's eggs. It removed all the crud and made the eggs so much more appealing! Took pics will post later. Great product!
Thanks, Mark M. From Iowa May 2017
It's a well built domestically made product that's made a huge difference in cleaning our eggs. Your scrubber has been cleaning 60-70 dozen eggs a week and has cut down the cleaning from three hours down to one.
Thanks, Carl M. From Washington State July 2017
We have been using The Little Egg Scrubber a couple of times every week. It's great and I believe I have cut washing time by about half. So far a great product and I like the design. Easy to use! All the best and I hope you sell a lot of them.
Thanks, Annie and Loui From VT Oct 2017
My husband and I have about 70 hens. We love taking care of our flock. We have been adding more and more birds every year. We have been hand washing the eggs for three years and it gets harder and harder every year. Joe says, “My back is killing me by the time I am finished washing all those eggs.” We have been looking for a US made egg washing machine for a couple of years and decided to search again this morning. We would like to stop by your shop to see the egg washer in action before purchasing one.
Update: Your son did an outstanding job with the demonstration! One week using The Little Egg Scrubber and Joe loves it. He won't let anyone else use it. LOL. We will tell all our friends and especially those that also have chickens and ducks. Thanks for allowing us to come to you last week. We really appreciate it.
Thanks, Charlene and Joe From NH Nov 2017
I purchased The Little Egg Scrubber and wow what a neat and cool device....I love the way it works and how well it cleans the eggs....plus it can handle a large batch of eggs in no time flat....it’s well built and we will be using our Little Egg Scrubber for a long time.
Thanks for a solid product, Kirk T. From Georgia Dec 2017
The device continues to scrub and make my life easier. The kids don’t even fight as much when they are forced to wash the eggs. Leg shackles and beatings haven’t been necessary since we got it.
Thanks, Robin N. From CA Dec 2017
My wife has about thirty laying hens so we were looking for a better way to clean the eggs than all the hand washing we were doing. A Google search lead us to “TheLittleEggScrubber.com” It seemed to be exactly what we were looking for, so we ordered one. We have had it a few months now and have washed LOTs of eggs with it. It works as advertised and has made the task of cleaning eggs so much easier. We have also been very pleased with the Power Sponges: these things are magic! We are big fans of “The Little Egg Scrubber” and would recommend it and the "Power Sponges" to anyone who wants a better way to clean eggs.
Best Wishes, Harvey I. From AL Jan 2018
I recommend this product to anyone hand washing eggs! I have between 20 to 60 dozen eggs to wash each week. This week I washed graded and packed 36 dozen by myself in two hours! That includes stamping cartons, as I sell to a local store. My eggs have to be clean! I feel The Little Egg Scrubber delivered on its promise! It is small enough to fit under my sink. It seems to be well made. I have used the bubbler type egg washer before and found it to break many eggs. This little gem doesn’t have that problem. I am so glad I got mine!
Thanks Little Egg Scrubber! John I. From NY Feb 2018
Was very surprised and excited how much time this Little Scrubber saves. I wash about 50 dozen eggs a week, it was taking 4 to 5 hours. I washed 28 dozen in 30 minutes. Unbelievable!!! I will be buying another one in a few months as a backup.
Thanks, Mandy T. From MO May 2018
Okay we've had our little egg scrubber for about a month. My husband loves the thing. LOVES! He'll often beat me to washing the eggs because this little beauty makes it easier. Take in mind the egg business is my business. My chicken sitter loved The Little Egg Scrubber when she took over for six days also.
This is a great little machine. My husband is a commercial fishermen and improves things all the time. It's a fisherman thing, trust me. And what's scary is he's usually right about his improvements. He didn't touch The Little Egg Scrubber. I would have bet money he would try. He examined it and gave it the thumbs up. It honestly looks like something he would make.
The next review will come when we get rain in the winter with our adobe mud. But, don't hold your breathe, we're in the drought area of California.
So thank you!! Lori F. From California July 2018
Been nearly a year now and super happy with -- MY TWO, that's right – TWO -- !!!! -- Little Egg Scrubber machines. I have several hundred hens and I cannot thank you enough for building this miracle unit. Tiny but powerful. Had one minor issue and your customer service and the phone support was superior! Looked for years for a USA made machine what was compact and reasonably priced, yours is a perfect KISS product, the best for small time producers.
Endorsement of your Machine, Joseph R. From MS Feb 2019
I purchased a scrubber late last fall, and had to wait until this spring to give it a try as we don't put lights on our ducks. For a few years now, we've had to wash our Rouen eggs and egg laying duck eggs from Metzer farms by hand, which is very time consuming as they are pretty dirty layers.
After I washed a few eggs, I had to get my wife and I tell her it was worth every penny! It's going to save me so much time and effort, I was absolutely ecstatic!
Thank you again!! Matthew K. From IA March 2020
Dear The Little Egg Scrubber....
I just wanted to say that my wife literally cries with joy every time she uses the scrubber. She is a full time RN and a full time mother of four little ones and a mother to 40+ laying hens. I have watched her for years stay up to 1am-2am in the morning hand washing and scrubbing eggs to take and give to her medical staff at the hospital as she is know as Mother Hen RN... I let the kids give the scrubber to their mom for an early mother's day gift and I just wanted to say that you have a very meaningful product and it was worth every penny.
Thanks Little Egg Scrubber....Best buy of a decade!!!
God Bless.........Jason F. From NC May 2020
We used the Little Egg Scrubber this morning and it was great - easy to use, efficient, and gets eggs cleaner than doing by hand. We got up to 15 eggs per minute. You have to be fast and focused to use the machine, but using it freed up two staff members to do other tasks. We love it!

5 STAR REVIEW,
I have had The Little Egg Scrubber since Christmas 2020. We haven’t used it much this winter, but now getting into longer days I use it every week! it take a fraction of the time to wash eggs, thanks The Little Egg Scrubber. From start to finish (taking my sweet time) 5 dozen eggs takes me 30 minutes. This includes cleanup time (rinsing buckets and sink). Literally so easy and such a back saver. I used to procrastinate scrubbing eggs every week - now it’s no big deal! If you have more than 15 laying chickens this is a MUST HAVE!
Worth every dime! Olivia J. From Dillon Montana April 2021
My Little Egg Scrubber arrived last week. I did 6 dozen eggs in almost no time flat - well, 40 minutes including setup, takedown, and some learning time. I’ll be doing another 6 dozen tomorrow, probably will take less than ten minutes. The Little Egg Scrubber will make my sideline egg business more than an occasional bonus. I am wholesaling them for $5 to $6 a dozen right now. (Eggs are spendy in Alaska!) It’s enough to make me think about expanding my flock.
The purchase was made with part of my stimulus check. What a great use for that kind of cash. I am delighted that I bought it.
Go ahead and post the review. And don’t forget to mention your shipping policy! (Free shipping to Alaska, PR and Hawaii) Believe me, free or at least reasonably priced shipping to Alaska has made or broken more than one sale.
Thanks, Lou H. From, Kenai, From Alaska April 2021
This little machine is a game changer! We just went from having around 100 egg laying chickens to about 500 and it was very time consuming. We thought we made a huge mistake until we found The Little Egg Scrubber. Thank you so much for taking your time and knowledge to make something so affordable and essential to our little homestead!
Stacey D. Lucky Duck Farm Schoharie, New York June 2021
I just wanted to say "thank you" for a good product and great service. We bought the scrubber for my sister - it has been wonderful. Even her 7 year-old has learned to use it and I am teaching my own kids to use it as well, so they can help out when we visit. It's simple, effective and reliable. I love using it, too. I used to visit and wash dozens of eggs by hand - so I know what an improvement this is.
It broke down after a few months and I contacted the service department, who were immediately helpful. They responded quickly and clearly. They sent out a new part and were fine with us making the repair ourselves, which was great.
It has worked ever since. I have been so pleased that I found a way to make my sister's life a little easier - and so impressed by your product and care.
Thanks very much! All the best, Anya M. Massachusetts July 2022
