Alcohol based cleaner for Food Contact Surface?

#1
Hello,

We are SQF certified facility. We are currently using a cleaining and sanitizing agent called Sani-T. It was sugguested by one of our machine suppliers that we do not use this on a piece of equipment and that we rather use an alcohol based cleaning agent. Is there anything per the FDA or SQF saying that we cannot do this for food contact surfaces?
The company is suggesting we use an acohol and water mix for a cleaning solution. However, I found the below information and I wanted to ensure that I was properly understanding it. Alcohol based cleaniers require an "intervening step". Does this mean after we use it for cleaning and sanitizing that we need to rinse it off with water? Also, if we use alcohol /water , is there a ratio that is required by fda for sanitation?
