One Step Cleanser
One Step is an environmentally sound, unique substance which consists of oxygen entrapped with a mineral crystal. When added to water, this crystal dissolves and releases the oxygen in such a way to form hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide does its work and degrades into oxygen and water, leaving only the minerals behind. Those minerals are naturally occurring compounds in the environment and are quite stable — in fact, you probably have appreciable amounts of them in the tap water you drink.|
How is One Step used?
Simply add 1 tablespoon One Step per gallon of cold or warm water and dissolve. Rinse or soak equipment and bottles with the One Step solution and use. For best results, ensure that your equipment has at least 30 seconds in contact with the One Step solution.
How long will One Step last?
Many factors come into play in answering that question. One Step works by producing hydrogen peroxide in solution, so the most important thing is to keep that peroxide. Peroxides are degraded by organic soils, light, and heat, so if you keep your solution away from those environmental factors, it will stay more effective for a longer period of time. In a closed, dark, and clean container, the solution will last up to 1 week. In a closed, clean container in a refrigerator, the solution is good for over a month (but let it warm up before you use it).
