Tip of the Week

Ice ….

is in great demand at the moment as we all make the most of this wonderful weather. To keep your drinks tasting great, make sure you don’t overlook your cleaning regime for your ice machine.

Problems to look out for in your machine are:

  • black mould growth inside the machine ice chute
  • black mould or slime on the curtain and sides of the inside of the machine
  • ice with “bits” in.


How to keep your ice machine in tip top condition: 

Each week empty machine, wash with hot soap water paying attention to the curtains and ice chute, then sanitise – spray with sanitiser and wipe with blue roll for additional cleaning, spray again with sanitiser and leave for the full contact time (follow sanitiser instructions, normally anywhere between 30 seconds to 5 minutes). Then refill machine.


Keep your ice scoops in a separate container so the handles which have been used by people do not come into contact with the ice.  Put through the dishwasher each day.
