What is Strong Acidic Water?
Strong Acidic Water is electrolytic water with electric potential, which includes the hypochlorous acid generated from the anode side when electrolysis is caused. It is made by adding electrolysis enhancer to tap water. It is not a chemical.
Strong Acidic Water was approved for disinfecting food products in June 2002, in accordance with Food Hygiene Law, under the name hypochlorous acid water. It is now used for a wide range of applications, including the cleaning and disinfecting of foods and cooking facilities.
Uses of Strong Acidic Water
Here are 4 common uses of Kangen Strong Acidic Water.
1. For cleaning foods
When cleaning with strong acidic electrolyzed water, it is important to keep the water running, as the available chlorine will lose effect quite quickly. When disinfecting a basin, allow the water to overflow to ensure continuous disinfection. Just be sure to limit the use of strong Kangen electrolytic water to a short time.
2. Disinfect utensils, towels and containers
When washing utensils, separate them depending on the particular use or type of dishes or tableware being cleaned. Rinse and allow to dry thoroughly.
3. Washing your hands
Washing your hands before cooking is an important aspect of food sanitation. Likewise, wash your hands carefully, then rinse with running strong acidic electrolyzed water to disinfect.
4. Washing metal objects
Metal utensils such as knives which are prone to rust may corrode when washed with strong acidic water. Rinse the knives with tap water or wipe with a cloth to prolong the lifespan of your metal utensils. For long-term use, protect your sink and drainpipes from corrosion by running tap water at the same time.
Do note that Strong Acidic Water is not suitable as drinking water but is gentle enough to be used on human skin as a disinfectant.
