Oxyxlean as a sanitizer?

Postby Hairybiker » Wed Apr 09, 2014 14:04

My latest tub of oxiclean, says on the front "Kills 99.9% of known germs" isn't this then a sanitizer as well as a cleaner?

I normally use oxy to clean the stuff, then before use I rinse with star-san.

Just wondering :whistle:

I wouldn't trust it as a sanitizer. I use it to soak the crud off of things but then still sanitize with starsan.

I know, I have NEVER used it as one, but as I say on the latest tub it has "kills 99.9% of germs" which would suggest that it is. :whistle:

I always use Videne after to sterilise, you need to give it a good flushing after using oxyclean with clean water as it will create a film over your equipment.

Depends on how much you use surely?
I use one scoop per vessel 23L + and rinse with hot water never had a film problem.

Cy I'm sorry but on this occasion you are wrong. The oxygen and the peroxide precursor are what gives it some disinfection properties. These are given off as gas and are readily soluble and easily rinsed. If left for an extended period the the other compounds in the cleaner complex with calcium leading to a white deposit which is a complete pain to remove. To avoid any issues keep the contact time short especially if you are in a hard water area, say no more than 30 minutes.

The kills 99.9% of all germs is nothing but a marketing term. Under what conditions . . Strength . . . Temperature . . . Contact time . . Without any of these you would be unwise to use it as a tertiary sanitiser, especially as you have to rinse

Personally I have NEVER had any issues with using oxy in my FV's. As I say I use one scoop per barrel and rinse with hot water after then satirize with star-san.

@Aleman true they don't give any contact times etc.
