What methods should be used to clean your winemaking equipment after use? Does rinsing it out with clean tap water clean good enough? Could you use dishsoap? I saw the thread on OxiClean, is this the best choice?

I use oxyclean to get rid of sediment stains/labels in hard to clean glass storage items (i.e. carboys and bottles). I find plastic buckets/hosing/fittings are easier to clean by hand washing (examining for potential contamination/leaks of course).

I rinse well, dry them and store.

ALL items then need to be sanitized again before use.

Also depending on how long stored & where stored, you may wish to clean again before sanitizing.

is cleaning with soap and water (and brush for carboys) then rinsing with sulfite solution sufficient?
