cleaning exterior of eggs

This may be a silly question but i couldn't find an answer with search.

what is the best way to clean up the outside of eggs?
Mine has a combination of dirt...white residue looks like spider webs,
grease running down from top,
general dirt.
Can i use anything other that water?
I would like to get it back to new condition.
Sorry, no pictures.

    i wasn't sure if chemicals could be used on the outside.
    I will give it a try.

    the outside is essentially glass.

    clean away, my friend

    I suspect those spider webs are actually minute cracks in the ceramic glaze that happens to a lot of people and does not affect the performance. Actually dirt on the exterior will fill the cracks or at least make them less noticeable. I also vote for the Simple Green.

    we don't have any simple green in the house.
    Do you have any other suggestions?

    clean the frigging thing with whatever you have that will clean the frigging thing.

    glaze is glass. you can't hurt it

    just no petroleum stuff.

    Thanks for the help everyone.
    You know how new parents are...maybe a little TOO cautious.
