- Jul 30, 2019-

Before you clean your water cooler, you will need to make a cleaning (disinfecting) solution. Whenever you make or use the solution, protect yourself by wearing:

safety glasses with side shields

disposable gloves

a waterproof apron, smock, or overalls

To make the disinfecting solution, mix together:

15 mL of five percent, unscented bleach

5 liters of clean, warm water

If you use a chemical product to clean, descale, or disinfect your water cooler make sure it is:

approved to use on food contact surfaces

used at the right concentration with enough retention time (follow manufacturer’s instructions)

stored properly

flushed out after cleaning (with water suitable to drink)
