Cleaning or disinfecting?

Cleaning and disinfection are indissolubly bound to eachother. Cleaning involves removing visible and invisible dirt and is done with a conventional detergent such as sodium triphosphate. Do not use any standard kitchen products (Dreft, Mr Clean, Cif, etc.). They are usually scented and obviously the scent can have a harmful effect on your wine/ beer. Disinfection involves killing bacteria, moulds, yeasts, etc. and is mostly done using a product made from active chlorine, hydrogen peroxide or iodine. Equipment must always be cleaned before it can be disinfected! There are also combination products on the market.

Belgian and Dutch legislation prevents us from describing a product as a disinfectant without having it registered as a pesticide. For small companies, this is a wearisome and exorbitantly expensive process. Therefore you wont find ‘disinfectant’ on any single piece of our packaging.
