There are three main steps you need to take: one is to clean your utensils, the other is to disinfect anything that comes in contact with your beer, and lastly, to sterilize it. Cleaning is done to remove visible dust and stains on the household cooking utensils that contain all your bottles. 

Remediation removes or eliminates invisible bacteria and microorganisms that can spoil your brew. Sterilizing or brewing your wort at a very high temperature for an hour or so is another way to maintain a clean environment for the brewing process.

A very clean and dust-resistant environment for working and storing all these devices is another important factor in the success of your home brewing. It doesn't help to do this cleaning if the area where you are flushing and draining all the dirty equipment, because all your hard work can be undone very quickly.

There are a number of different chemicals that can be used for this cleaning process, from iodine-based, chlorine-based to ammonia-based, as well as several environmentally friendly cleaning products. Be careful with iodine-based products as this will stain all plastic utensils and your skin.
