so i'm all set to brew up an experimental "black ipa" and i decide it would be much easier on me if i trip over my big feet during the boil and break the only carboy i have that isnt in storage since my move to a new apartment. i came up with an old bucket that used to be my primary but now is mostly storage. it's kind of icky inside and i dont have a whole lot of sanitizzer on hand. long story short, i find my wife has a stash of these clorox sanitizing wipes. they say you can use them for surfaces that touch food if you rinse well with pottable water. they actually seem to be working quite well as a sort of pre-clean to me soaking with a *very* small amount of sanitizer (most of it was used on the now broken carboy). just thought i'd share the fact that i think these things are cool.

Bill P has me turned to dishwasher soap...cleans the "ickyest" and rinses easy with cold water.

I prefer PBW but automatic dishwasher detergent is a lot cheaper here in Canada (I can buy it by the bucket at Costco) and seems to be reasonably effective.

I have converted from TSP to dishwasher soap due to incredible cost difference. I'm a lazy cleaner and like to let things soak. The dishwasher grains do the job

I also have found automatic dishwasher detergent is about as good or better than most cleaners out there. Sam's club has buckets of the stuff for dirt cheap. Highly recomended.

I would jus like to add that the dish detergent requires absolutely no scrubbing. Just soak until required and rinse

Yep. That's why it works in dishwashers!

Use Arm and Hammer washing soda.

It's really cheap and it works like PBW, in my experience.

sounds like dishwasher soap is the way to go. I'll have to ask my dishwasher what soap she uses (insert drumroll)
