Hmmm no.
I wash them with dish soap and a sponge. Do you use star san on your dishes? seems like a total waste.

Star San is a sanitizer. Using it for cleaning is analogous to washing your car with Windex. It may work but that's not what it's designed for.

Yes, I understand the difference. Posting on my mobile clearly decreases my desire to articulate when typing. I was merely pointing out that PBW requires rinsing and star San doesn't because of the way they were formulated. One is a cleaner and needs to be rinsed and the other is a sanitizer that does not need to be rinsed.

WOW, I just pulled both products out and looked at the labels. PBW states, "Rinse Immediately". Star San states, "Do not rinse". Seems pretty simple to me. Where is all the confusion coming from.

I scrub my SS BK with PBw & rinse well afterward. Dry with a towel & stash it under the fermenter stand with the lid on. Still shiny as new inside.

My PBW came in a bag from some guy on the street and doesn't have a label. Some of your responses are helpful but some of your posts make me feel like an idiot and I shouldn't ask questions, which is the reason for this forum sharing information.

Slow down boys and girls... we were all newbies at some point... chill out... it's just PBW... no one's going to die here...

And yes, to the original posters comment, you can use PBW (which is amazing btw) but rinse that **** out. There are plenty of threads on here you can research the how to use PBW. HINT: you don't always need as much as they recommend on the label.
