I hook mine upt to the shop sink that has a male garden hose adapter. It's a tight fit and I run hot water through it.

The gunk is usually still very wet and cleans right out. After that, I soak it in my sink of bleach water solution.

I drop it into my carboy when I soak it with OXYCLEAN. It tends to cloud up the tubing but it cleans it really well.

Forgive my ignorance... If I push my blowoff hose in my carboy I will need to break the glass to get it out..

I JUST did that and it was a HUGE PITA to get out. I'd suggest that you use a bucket.

I have a smaller bottle brush connected at the handle to a 4 foot length of wire. I then run the wire end through the blow off hose and pull the brush through the tube. It cleans all the crud off really well.

I wouldn't worry too much about it if it's a dedicated blow-off tube. Run some oxyclean through it and sanitize it before each use, but don't spend too much time on it.

Beer Line Cleaner (BLC) will do the trick everytime. I only use blowoff tubes and this has never failed me
