    So I was talking to the distributors about water sanitation in our sink. He mentioned that the solution is not as effective when hot than warm ect. As I have always done in the past to allow dishes to dry after being either rinsed or dipped into hot water I now question such a simple task :D. What do you guys think?

    Water that is too hot will render Quat Amonium, iodine and chlorine sanitizers less effective. The recommended range is 55-120F. Hope this helps!
