Mine is in an inline fitting, so I just toss it in starsan, then hang the fitting to dry. I have done 15 batches this way. Been thinking about boiling it soon to clean it though.

I have not been taking care of mine other than making sure it's blowing when I put it in and out of the wort and then just dipping it in Star San and not covering.

I have had multiple re-occurring infections, I think it might be from the diffusion stone not being taken care of properly. I will replace and follow the steps here (boiling, storing covered in sanitized plastic baggy).

My god...Mine's on a wand, and it just sits in my parts box with all my other gear. I've never stored it in a baggie or wrapped in tinfoil. I just occasionally boil it. But I've used it for years with never storing it special.

I also have the one that is attached to a wand. I rinse it off and set it on a shelf until brew time, then I boil it.

I only boil mine maybe twice a year unless it seems extra sticky.

I have a wand. I keep it stored in StarSan. I made a tube out of 1-1/2 inch PVC and two caps.

Same here. I just leave it hooked up to the o2 tank on a shelf in the garage. I soak it in star san before and after use and then run the o2 for a few seconds before I put it away. I probably will start covering it with a sanitized baggie.. that seems easy enough.
