Multi-purpose cleaner for tartrates, color and organic soils
Cleanskin is an multi-purpose alkaline detergent formulated in 2002 by AiRD Chemistry, in conjunction with the Australian wine industry. It is now recognized as the benchmark product for one-process non-caustic cleaning. This proprietary cleaner can be used in the winery to remove wine tartar, color materials, protein and organic soils. This multi-purpose cleaner for stainless steel and associated materials is sodium carbonate based. Cleanskin also contains proprietary percarbonates, chelation and sequestering aids, polysurfactants and a rinse-aid, thus eliminating the need for a citric acid neutralizing rinse.
Cleanskin is available in two formulations: Cleanskin and Cleanskin-K. Standard Cleanskin is a sodium based formulation and Cleanskin-K is potassium based. Determine which version you should use based on your waste water system requirements (sodium or potassium).Key Features
- Multi-purpose particulate preparation for cleaning stainless steel.
- 100% active, water soluble cleaner with no fillers.
- Contains no chlorine, phosphates or halogen based compounds.
- Suitable for use with an automated CIP system or with manual cleaning.

- General Range: 0.50 - 4.0 kg/100L (0.67-5.34 oz/gallon)
- For wine film with no/light tartar: 0.5-1.0 kg/100 L
- Wine film with moderate/heavy tartar: 2.0- 4.0 kg/100 L
- Begin with the appropriate volume of water* for the system being cleaned. The water should be between 68-140°F (20-60°C).
- Prepare appropriate volume of water, accurately measure the correct weight of the Cleanskin-K.
- Slowly add the powder into the water mixing until a consistent solution is obtained.
- Initially the prepared solution will appear milky, but will soon clarify. Once the solution has clarified it is ready for use.
*Note: Because Cleanskin is a no-rinse product, only clean, potable water should be used to prepare your cleaning solution.
Store in a dry, odor free environment between 50-68°F (10-20°C), away from sunlight.
To optimize tartrate cleaning, particularly after using chilling to achieve potassium tartrate stabilization, you should allow the very cold solids and the tank interior to return to ambient temperature before beginning your cleaning regime. At this time the crystals are soft and are still in a state of hydration making cleaning easier. Avoid letting the crystals dry onto the surface, this makes cleaning more challenging.
