Why do we sell our eggs unwashed? Because they last longer unwashed. Wash them in cool water just before using.
How long do eggs last
Unwashed eggs will last at least two weeks unrefrigerated and three months or more in the refrigerator. Washed eggs will last at least 2 months in the refrigerator but won't taste as fresh as unwashed eggs of the same age.
