I've heard of you being able to get Iodophor at the local feed store or something like a Tractor Supplies store. Not sure about StarSan though...

Maybe at a place where they milk cows? I think it was originally made for the Dairy industry. Starsan is mainly used by the brewing industry now though.

Maybe he was talking about TSP (TRISODIUM PHOSPHATE)

Info here TSP (Trisodium Phosphate) Usage Information on the Natural Handyman home repair and do it yourself website

I know I bought my star san at the local hardware store...... of course the local hardware store has a home brew isle..... who would have thought that the only place in town to buy home brew supplies would be an Ace Hardware!!
