Bring a pot of water to a boil, let it cool. You can rinse with that. I use that as a standard practice with my beer making since beer is much more susceptible to infections than wine (lower final ABV %).I can see where your coming from but i have the pink powder stuff
What is the name of the "Pink Stuff" The majority of sanitizing solutions sold today are no-rinse products.I can see where your coming from but i have the pink powder stuff
The idea is that my water has stuff growing in it (like most water supplies do) that I don't want to transfer to my wine. Boiling the water kills the microbes that may be living in it, drives off some of the chlorine that may be added to the water (this is for my beer making purposes). So when you rinse your "clean" item that you used your pink powder sanitizer, it hopefully stays sanitized and removes the pink powder residue that isn't healthy to ingest. And having used it before, Chlorinated TSP isn't very good to ingest. Might want to use Green label Oxi-clean if you are using it to clean bottles.Why do you boil the water ? Just put it in the sink ? Thanks for replying
This is what I used to do. If you are going to use TSP, go ahead and rinse with tap water, in a sink or spray it or whatever. Just know that you then need to sanitize it with a no rinse solution like Star San or One Step or something along those lines. I remember using TSP to remove bottle labels on beer bottles, then soaking the bottles in a trash can with clean water, then rinsing the dried bottles with pre-boiled water before adding beer to them. Think of Chlorinated TSP as a sledge hammer type cleaner. It will remove about anything, just need to rinse it well, very well.I was trying to see what it meant by "rinse well" on the container . So did you just rinse it in a tub of water before ? That what I'm worried about , not rinsing all the residue off . Defiantly switching to the no rinse type .
Then rinsing it in your sink should be fine. Your original post led people to think that you were using it as part of a normal cleaning regiment.I'm not going to use it anymore . I was just worrying because I used it to clean my equipment and wanted to make sure i rinsed well enough. thanks for replaying
I think you are fine. I used it for about 10 years until I discovered using Oxi-clean worked just as well and was a bit less harsh on my hands.I was just worried that using it on my equiment and filling a sick of water to rinse it was doing a good enough job . They I thought that if I'm using a sink of water that there has to be some left on my equiment . Just want to make sure I'm rinsing enough.
