Wow, thanks for all the quick replies guys! Always nice to have a friendly and active forum when starting a new hobby
I shall go with bleach then for sanitizing. I have confidence in our public tap water here - it's odorless, colorless, and tastes just fine.
Now if I can just find an odorless antibacterial dish soap I'll be all set. What do you guys use that can easily be found locally? I was at Walmart the other day and it's all lavender this and watermelon kiwi that...
If I can't find anything this weekend I'll just pickup some oxyclean as per the sticky.
