Abstract : An effective towellette or waterless sanitation system for food service utensils was devised and tested. Cleaning of surfaces and reduction of microorganisms on naturally contaminated surfaces and in biofilms deliberately produced on stainless steel was achieved by a combination of three wipes applied in sequence. Wipe 1, containing a detergent/degreaser, was followed by wipe 2 containing water to rinse the surface, and wipe 3 containing a quaternary ammonium sanitizer. Reduction of E. coli and S. aureus in the biofilms produced on surfaces was 99.999 to 100 percent. Packaged and sterilized wipes will be provided to mobile Kitchen Trailers for emergency use in the field, in the event that a potable water supply or hot water is not available or needs to be conserved....
