Residue-Free Glassware Cleaner for Lab Washer

Q. I am currently looking for a residue-free glassware cleaner to use in our new lab washer. We would like to make sure that residue is not left behind on our glassware after washing. This is a normal portable dish washer that is typically used in the home. Could you recommend a detergent for us to use?

Removing Pumice Residues

We take our parts and put them in a “cement mixer” type parts washer with some water and pumice and tumble them for four hours. We recently noticed that if we also add your Alcojet®, the parts don’t have any residual pumice on the surface after we rinse them. Why is that? Would you recommend we continue this practice?

Bleach with Detergents for Disinfection?

Adding bleach to Alconox and Liquinox detergents can be done to enhance the disinfecting and oxidizing properties of these cleaners. Adding oxidizing does bring one more cleaning mechanism to the cleaning process which can be helpful if you are trying to clean dyes, pigments, heavy burned on organic residues and other residues that are labile to oxidation. You can get some disinfection, but as we will explain, you need to clean a surface first before you disinfect.

Silicon Oil

Cleaning Silicone Grease Residue Build Up in a Parts Washer

We have a glass wash machine and use Alcojet for it. We would like to know if you need to include a neutralizing agent like Citrajet as part of the wash cycle (acid rinse)? Alcojet® Low Foaming Powdered Detergent is what we would call free-rinsing, meaning it rinses completely away with water without rinse aids.

Lab Glassware

Cleaning Glassware with Acid Rinse

Q. I use a Miele glass wash machine and currently use Alcojet. I am wondering if I need to use a two step wash with an acid rinse to be sure the glass is residue free. What detergents would you recommend for either a one or two step cleaning process?
A. Alcojet detergent is free-rinsing, meaning it rinses completely away with water and without rinse aids. There are no softeners, brighteners, fragrances or other residues that are not involved with the specific action of aqueous cleaning. Having said that, we know of many applications that do still involve an acid rinse/wash.
