  THE 8 RULES OF CLEANING & SANITIZING  
  1. You can only sanitize CLEAN equipment.  
  2. Dirty equipment will always contain bacteria (wort spoilers).  
  3. Cleaners are NOT sanitizers. Whether alkali, acid, or oxygen base,  
  cleaners should not be used as the final procedure.  
  4. Sanitizers are NOT cleaners and should never be used as such. Sanitizers should be used ONLY as the final procedure. Sanitization is only achieved AFTER cleanliness is achieved.  
  5. The more heat and contact time, the better and easier the cleaning job becomes. Although you should never store chemicals in your equipment. Leaving a soak over night isn't always the best thing to do. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.  
  6. DO NOT OVERUSE CLEANERS OR SANITIZERS. Never think "if a little is good, then a lot is better." Generally "a lot" is bad. Higher concentrations don't always work as well. This can leave chemical residue requiring more water to rinse and carries the risk of damaging your equipment. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.  
  7. Cleaners and sanitizers can only do their job if they come in direct contact with the soils. This means that all surfaces, small parts and all, must be directly soaked and / or hand cleaned with cleaner, rinsed in cold water, and then directly soaked in sanitizer.  
  8. ALWAYS add cleaning or sanitizing chemicals to water, NEVER add water to chemicals.
