We achieved the minimum 99.9% reduction of E. coli with 60 seconds contact time, without pre-dissolving the salt.
We achieved the minimum 99.9% reduction for S. aureus when utilizing the pre-mixing of the salt before cycling, and with a 5-minute contact time. For a 60 sec contact time, the addition of vinegar significantly improved the reduction to 98.944%.
