A soda machine, also known as a fountain, is a common item in home wet bars. While it can be expensive to purchase, the benefit to the environment from not using as many cans or plastic bottles and the savings in purchasing bulk soda syrup from warehouse stores and restaurant suppliers help to offset the initial investment. Keeping the nozzles properly cleaned and the soda machine properly sanitized is important to avoid health risks, but the costs and effort are minimal. Only the nozzles need to be sanitized as the actual soda lines are not exposed to air or bacteria.
Mix the sanitizer with cold water in a sink or bucket. Sanitizing solution is available at restaurantsupply stores and usually comes with test strips. After adding the proper ratio of sanitizer to water as outlined on the package, dip a test strip into the water to verify the proper amount has been used.
Unscrew the nozzle from the fountain or gun. Under the nozzle is the diffuser. Twist this off as well. Soak both in the sanitizing solution for a several minutes while you sanitize the rest of the machine.
Dip the rag into the sanitizing solution and wipe down all exposed areas of the soda machine, paying special attention to the area where the nozzle and diffuser go. Sanitizing solution is not toxic so there is no need to rinse it away.
Wipe away any dirt or dried soda from the nozzles and diffusers, and remove them from the sanitizing solution. Allow them to air dry before reattaching them to the fountain.
