A 171°F

Explanation: One method for sanitizing dishes, utensils, and equipment is to soak them in hot water. The water should be at least 171°F and the item should be completely submerged for at least 30 seconds. This can be done in a large sink but usually, it is done by running the item through a high-temperature dishwasher.
