Wanting to know what everyone does to sanitize auto-siphon or wine thief for example?

To santize my auto-siphon, I pump it through a few times with water/pbw mixture to wash it, then pump it a few times through with starsan. Then, I hang it up so that no water sits in it and it dries through. Do not use too hot of water on the auto-siphon, it will bend the crap out of the platic and you will have to buy a new one....I have done it.

Clean by pumping Oxyclean solution through.
Sanitize by pumping Starsan solution through.

Wine Thief or baster soak in Oxyclean then soak in Starsan.

And yes, I have used Oxyclean Free (the green lid), same as PBW as far as I am concerned.

I put my auto-siphon in picture of StarSan and pump it with the return going back in the picture just do that for 30 seconds. The instrutions say 2 minutes because that is the FDA standard is two minutes and StarSan has to put that in their instructions but the maker of StarSan says 30 seconds is sufficient.

I guess I do similar, just looking for diff ways. I don't have anything to soak it in cause of length. I want to find something long and shallow so I can submerge on its side, say with only one gallon of water or less

True. I guess I was referring to soak, as in for my iodine sanitizer. Think it says it needs 2 minutes

Any reason you don't use starsan? No rinse, and no need to soak.
