I would not give eggs to anybody who would worry about them being a bit dirty, those people can buy squeaky clean eggs. :)

Washing an egg removes its protective bloom and lets bacteria in which the commercial egg producers get over by using an anti bacterial wash.
If you have to wash a very mucky egg use water as hot as possible as less bacteria will be absorbed than with cold.

with any muck on, if the muck is still damp then wipe off gently with the bedding  :)
Staffies are softer than you think.

I personally do not wash eggs that I give away, I just explain to the people that I give them to that they shouldn't wash them because then the egg absorbs bactiera ( I can't spell today :/).

If you really NEED to wash the egg, follow the others advice ;)
