What makes One Step different from other powdered cleansers?One Step is the only environmentally sound no-rinse cleanser on the market. Other powdered cleansers either require rinsing due to their alkaline nature or use materials that can be harmful to the ecosystem. One Step is also the only no-rinse cleanser that uses active oxygen to do its work.How do you use One Step?Simply add 1 tablespoon One Step per gallon of cold or warm water and dissolve. Rinse or soak equipment and bottles with the One Step solution and use. For best results, insure that you have a 30 second contact time with the One Step solution.How long is the One Step solution good for?Many factors come into play in answering that question. One Step works by producing hydrogen peroxide in solution, so the most important thing is to keep that peroxide. Peroxides are degraded by organic soils, light, and heat, so if you keep your solution away from those things, it will stay better, longer. In a closed, dark, and clean container, the solution will last up to 1 week. In a closed, clean container in a refrigerator, the solution is good for over a month (but let it warm up before you use it).Will One Step harm metal surfaces?No.How is One Step environmentally sound?One Step is a unique substance which consists of oxygen entrained with a mineral crystal. When added to water, this crystal dissolves and releases the oxygen in such a way to form hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide does its work and degrades into oxygen and water, leaving only the minerals behind. Those minerals are naturally occuring compounds in the environment and are quite stable-- in fact, you probably have appreciable amounts of them in the tap water you drink.How can a no-rinse cleanser like One Step not affect beer flavor?There is a very low level of solid material in a One Step solution (1 Tbsp. per gallon is not much!). Once bottles or equipment have been rinsed, the solution easily drains off, leaving very little solution behind-- which has very little solids. Even those solids that may be left are the same types of minerals which you would be leaving behind if you were to go ahead and rinse with tap water. (Not to mention the fact that a lot of the mineral content of the One Step solution is the same as that responsible for the excellent water of Burton-on-Trent brews!)
