FOOD PROCESSING AND DAIRY EQUIPMENT:
Remove gross food particles and soil by a pre-flush or pre-scrape and when necessary, pre-soak treatment. Clean all surfaces with an appropriate chlorinated alkaline cleaner, followed by a potable water rinse prior to the application of the sanitizing solution.
Sanitize equipment prior to use with a solution of 1 ounce Agro-San per 6 gallons of water, to provide 90 ppm of decanoic and nonanoic acid.

For mechanical operations, the prepared use solution may not be re-used for sanitizing, but may be re-used for other purposes such as cleaning. For manual operations, fresh sanitizing solution should be prepared daily or more often if the solution becomes dirty or soiled.
