Several months ago I came across a handful of articles that suggested for CIP equipment and/or items like tables, floor-model mixers, etc., cleaning should be performed from top to bottom...but sanitation should be performed from bottom to top. I could never quite locate the reasoning for "bottom to top" application of the sanitizer
I've been questioned about this and wanted to get some additional input.
"Top to bottom" is logical for cleaning...is this also an appropriate approach for sanitizing, top to bottom? Or should we spray from bottom to top?
We use a 200ppm QATS sanitizer in a spray bottle for these types of surfaces. There is no specific spray instruction on the sanitizer.
Thanks for any assist.
