since it's non-rinse I decided to spray some oranges I have in a huge bowl for juicing. A week later, no mold!

Just wondering why i never thought of doing this before. Also, think about summer berries like raspberries and blueberries that get moldy right away.

I haven't tried that, but there was a mouse in my kitchen cabinets, so I think I'll take everything out and spray it with StarSan.

I was thinking of using star san on my fishing wading boots to rid them of nasties.

Undilluted starsan destroys counter tops, make sure not leave bottle on nice counter tops.
Big oops right before moving from old place. Diluted should be fine. Not sure I'd use on wading boots as it is an acid.

I use it on all fruits and vegetables that aren't going to be either peeled or cooked.
A quick spray and a miinute later a rinse.

Lots of hands sorting through those grapes and other stuff in a supermarket.

I will use it in drains ... Sounds gross, but drains, garbage disposers get nasty. A nice produce web cut with water to cleean counter tops

A rinse with diluted vinegar will have the same effect on fruit. So in a sense, you are just providing a nice acid wash for the fruit to kill the nasties.

Yup.. Starsan has no odor. I prefer that to vinegar except in salads. LOL

I keep a spray bottle in the kitchen and use it to sanitize my countertops before I cook and after I cleanup.
