Ha I'm glad I clicked on this thread. I am probably the most Obsessive Compulsive person that you'll never meet in your life. I usually scald all of my utensils and brew tools with hot water, then hang them out to dry. And finally I sometimes wrap some paper towel around them.After you sanitize something, how do you handle and store it to ensure it remains sanitary? Do you sanitize tongs and just use those for handling? Do you use the sanitized equipment immediately before it has a chance to collect any bacteria?
Ugh, don't even say that. I absolutely hate spiders. :shocked: The thought that they can be made on my equipment makes me never want to use it, EVER.I do the same thing when I am doing with anything that requires it to be sanitized. So I do not have to be concerned about it building up bacteria or other items while stored. You never know what kind of spiders or other insects can creep into the equipment.
Do you wear the little hat and mask too?One thing I like to do is have lots of rubber gloves around. I picked up a dozen packages not long ago really cheap. I keep a sanitized pair for handling things I use in canning or preparing anything that needs sterilization.
