Critical Cleaning for Medicinal “Flower” Processors and Laboratories
Critically clean processing equipment, whether it be labware, glassware, filing equipment, or processing and extraction equipment, is vital. Waxy, resin, oily, and sticky residues abound which can be highly adherent, difficult to emulsify, and just a plain challenge to remove. Alconox is not only effective, but end-user safe, aqueous, free-rinsing, interfering residue-free, biodegradable, and without any added dyes, fragrances, brighteners or softeners. In other words, perfect for cleaning medicinal “flower” extracts.

Cleaning method: Soak, brush, sponge, cloth, ultrasonic, flow through clean-in-place. Will foam—not for spray or machine use. Directions: Make a fresh 1% - 6% solution (2 1/2 Tbsp. per gal., 1 1/4 oz. per gal. or 10 grams per liter) in cold, warm, or hot water. If available use warm water. Use cold water for bloodstains. For difficult soils, raise water temperature and use more detergent. Clean by soak, circulate, wipe, or ultrasonic method. Not for spray machines, will foam. For nonabrasive scouring, make a paste. Use 2% solution to soak frozen stopcocks. To remove silver tarnish, soak in 1% solution in an aluminum container. RINSE THOROUGHLY—preferably with running water. For critical cleaning, do final or all rinsing in distilled, deionized, or purified water. For food contact surfaces, rinse with potable water. Used on a wide range of glass, ceramic, plastic, and metal surfaces. Corrosion testing may be advisable.
