---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Fri, 28 Nov 2008 06:41:48 -0500 From: Fred L Johnson <FLJohnson52 at nc.rr.com> Subject: Re: Sanitizer getting old Keith asks how to determine if his sanitizers (iodophor and Starsan) are still effective after a long (a year or more) of unuse. I have no experience with Starsan, so I'll leave that response to others. Regarding iodophor solutions, National Chemicals, Inc., who makes B-T- F Iodophor Solutions also supplies iodine test paper strips for a mere $1.63 for a pack of 25 strips. The strips turn shades of dark gray depending on the concentration of iodine in the solution. The color is reminiscent of a starch test, and I'm guessing the paper strips may be impregnated with starch. I rarely use them, as one can pretty well judge the iodine content of a solution by its amber color. You can order the test strips on the company's web site at nationalchemicals.com. The contact info from their web site is: National Chemicals, Inc. 105 Liberty Street PO Box 32 Winona, MN 55987 Toll Free: (800) 533-0027 International (507) 454-5640 Fax: (877) 858-4141 Fred L Johnson Apex, North Carolina, USA Return to table of contents
