Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best water temperature for cleaning?

Organic resin buildups can be tough to remove. The best way to dissolve them is with warm or hot water up to 140° F (60°C).

How much should I dilute the Step 1 Cleaner concentrate?

Depending on the parts or equipment surface being cleaned, and the level of soil or buildup, the solution can be diluted as much or as little as needed. You can also refer to our dilution chart.

General cleaning - 5 Water : 1 Concentrate
Equipment foaming - 10 Water : 1 Concentrate (Let sit 5-10 minutes)
Overnight soak - 15 Water : 1 Concentrate

Is Step 1 Cleaner safe for food contact surfaces?

Yes, Step 1 is a food safe cleaner that can be applied to any food-contact surface. Be sure to rinse thoroughly after cleaning. The solution is an easy, effective cleaner that is GMP-compliant for any food-safe environment.

Is the cleaner easy to use?

Yes. Simply apply the cleaning solution to the target surface area or equipment part. Allow the formula to soak into the greases, oils, residues, and organics to emulsify and lift the soil. Use a plastic razor, soft-bristled brush, or cloth to help lift the soil. Rinse thoroughly with warm or hot water.

What type of solution is Step 1 Cleaner?

Step 1 Cleaner is an alkaline formula that is effective on tough soils and buildups. The powerful solution loosens stubborn resins, organics, greases, and oil accumulations. It easily penetrates gums and dyes that are otherwise unaffected by caustics and dangerous solvents that are found in other cleaners. The formulation includes a buffering agent that enables it to behave towards target material surfaces as a neutral solution.

What is GMP?

GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) is a set of rules and procedures related to the handling, processing, cleaning, and packaging of manufacturing facilities and the products they produce. GMP regulations apply to certified facilities that handle plants, food, drugs, and cosmetics to ensure the products are safe, pure, and effective.
