Your right Bob.
I almost shot from the hip and said "yes, the BS handbook" but upon
reference the handbook says to do a hot rinse after the sanitizer.
My stint with scout camping over the last 20 years has offered me a lot of
chances to do it every which way including the dry sand method (it works
I personally like the cap of bleach in my final rinse (hot or cold).
I also like to use a "sanitized" wiping cloth around cutting and prep areas
and an antibacterial soap since there seems to be so much around these days.
But,I think it is most important that scouts know the why of something as
well as the how of something so they have in incenetive to pass on the
knowledge automatically because it makes sense to keep things like your
hands and eating utensils clean.
I have made a crusade almost of raising my district troops use of 3 pot from
<25% to >95% over the last ten years or so.
One troop that did have an excellent kitchen and washing procedure but no
sanitizer phase still holds a grudge because it didnt get its 3 pot points.
Figure it out, do whats right and NEVER DO A JOB A BOY CAN DO..
