Directions

  1. Follow machine manufacturer's directions and use the powder detergent receptacles.
  2. In general, use ½-1% hot water wash cycle solutions (1¼-2½ tbsp. per gallon, ¾-1¼ ounce per gallon or 5-10 grams per liter – most machines need 2½ ounces added at a typical 2 gallon wash cycle).
  3. For manual soak, circulate or ultrasonic use, make a 1% solution in warm or hot water. For abrasive scrubbing, make a paste. For difficult soils, raise water temperature and use more detergent.
  4. Wear protective gloves and eyewear when handling.
  5. Rinse thoroughly, preferably with running water.
  6. For critical cleaning, do final, or all rinsing, in distilled, deionized or purified water. For food contact surfaces, rinse with potable water.

Cleaning Validation Methods

Test a parameter of rinse water before and after rinsing the cleaned surface. No significant change in the parameter indicates no detectable residue. Parameters measured include: pH, conductivity, resistance, spectrographic methods, total organic carbon, and surface analysis.
