One Step Cleanser 8oz will make 16 gallons of solution.
One Step is the only environmentally sound no-rinse cleanser in the home-brew market today and, unlike other cleansers that require rinsing because of their alkaline nature or use materials that can be harmful to the environment, One Step is the original no-rinse cleanser and uses active oxygen to clean your home-brew and winemaking equipment.
One Step uses oxygen entrained within a mineral crystal that dissolves when combined with water, which in turn releases the oxygen to form hydrogen peroxide – a compound long known for its sanitizing and disinfectant abilities. The hydrogen peroxide completes its work and then degrades into oxygen and water, leaving behind only the minerals that are stable, naturally occurring compounds – no different than minerals often found in drinking water.
In addition, One Step uses a very small concentration – only 1 tablespoon per gallon! – so the solution easily drains away, leaving very little solid material behind. In fact, most of the mineral content that may be left behind is the same as what you would find in your drinking water.
Cleanser or Sanitizer?
One Step is not a certified sanitizer as defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Obtaining that designation for use in promotional literature and packaging is, unfortunately, an expensive and time-consuming process that includes ongoing review by the EPA. Companies that obtain or use that designation typically invest a significant amount of capital or use another company’s product through a process called “sub-registration.” However, unless you are operating a commercial brewery, winemaking operation, restaurant or similar business, you probably don’t need a designated sanitizer.
The bottom line is that One Step has produced excellent results for homebrewers and wine-makers since 1992.
How To Use One Step
Simply add 1 tablespoon of One Step to a gallon of cold or warm water and dissolve. Rinse or soak equipment and bottles with the One Step solution. For best results, a 60-second contact time with the One Step solution is recommended.
What Makes One Step Work?
One Step is completely non-toxic and contains no ecologically harmful substances and quickly biodegrades into naturally occurring substances. And unlike other no-rinse cleansers, One Step doesn’t stain skin, clothing or work surfaces.
Our Active Ingredients
Oxygen – The high oxygen levels provided through a dry form of hydrogen peroxide minimizes contact time, making One Step fast and effective.
Cleansing – One Step provides good detergency for light-duty cleaning.
No Rinsing – Because One Step doesn’t require rinsing, it minimizes the risk of recontamination by maintaining contact with the clean surface.
