Have you fallen for the nozzle hygiene myth?

You will have your method to clean tap nozzles, but is it the best way?

Our research supports our experience when visiting customers’ bars – one in 3 outlets still soaks nozzles in soda water while another 20% soak nozzles in tap water overnight.

Just over 40% of outlets don’t clean tap nozzles at all at the end of every day. So what is best practice?

Simply rinse each nozzle under warm running tap water at the end of every day and leave to dry before replacing at the start of service. Then during each line clean, place nozzles in a container of line cleaning solution and rinse thoroughly in tap water before replacing.
