dawnsclassycupboard said:You can tell your customers that bacteria grows in damp places. Bateria grows when there are food particles stuck to the surface and it has a damp place to grow. The reason that no soap is required is that soap only loosens food particles not kills bacteria and our scrapers serve the same purpose. Scrape them, rinse them and dry them before putting them away and no bacteria will grow.
I find the whole soap does not kill germs thing questionable as well, but didn't question our home office. Why else does a surgeon need to wash hands with soap, restaurant workers,etc. But, check out #12 posting on the following thread and read what home office provided.....hmmmm?:cookingwithlove said:While you are essentially correct, bacteria do need water to live. I am a microbiologist (PhD) and soap most certainly does kill bacteria, as well as viruses. Please do not tell people that it does not. This is the reason that is it is essential that you use soap and water to wash your hands. The reason we do not need to use soap on stoneware is that you are essentially removing anything that will support bacterial grow, ie water and food, with the scraper and then drying the stone before putting it away.
