    Anybody have experience with One Step? The instructions claim rinsing is not necessary, has anyone used this product without rinsing?

    I would be suspicious of any cleaner That Claims no Rinse. Cant have much cleaning power

    It seems to clean well, similar to oxiclean. I gave the bottles a small rinse just to be safe. There was definitely a cleanser-odor lingering in the bottles before I rinsed

    Reading the non-5-star reviews, it seems to be an ok sanitizer and a mediocre cleaner. Marketed as a cleaner because 'sanitizer' is a more strictly-controlled thing. Dunno, never used it.

    Must break down Into safe to consume compounds.
    I didn't see the Active ingredient in it though.

    We use an animal-safe cleaner at work that is environmentally friendly because it's hydrogen peroxide based, once it's exposed to light for a certain amount of time it breaks down into water. I think this cleaner must be similar. The bottles look pretty spotless, that's all I care about :D

    You prolly don't want your brew to taste like cleaner either.

    Back in my early days of brewing - when we were deconstructing the ark and burning that under the boil kettle - One Step was marketed as a Cleaner and Sanitizer in one. I used it a few times. But most folks said it was not as good a sanitizer as Star San. So I switched to generic oxy to clean and Star San to sanitize. It seemed like a good, but expensive, product and I had doubts about it as a full fledged sanitizer.

    So after I used up a small jar of One Step I switched back to OxiClean Free (which had been my go to brewery cleaner). I think I might go back to One Step. It made my kettle shinier after cleanup and I appreciated the ecofriendly, no rinse aspect to it (though I did rinse it off every time, it was nice being able to do it outside in the yard without worrying about getting soap/chems into the soil.) It also made labels fall off of bottles just as effectively as OxiClean.
