When sanitizing your smaller equipment and implements, do you use the dishwasher? How hot does it have to be set in order to make sure that it does sterilize everything? I know some things must be washed by hand, but a lot of smaller pieces should be able to go in the dishwasher.
We depend on our plumber to set the hot water and our dishwasher and never give it another thought. I thought it was all regulated by the hot water heater. We do have an old dishwasher without a lot of fancy settings. We just pray sometimes that it will kick in and go through all of its cycles.
What Wild said, but if yours doesn't have one you could always type in something like "Sanitizing water temperature" and just turn up your water heater to that temperature. I imagine that would work, right?
