Default blow-off tube to siphon beer?

Hey guys, quick question.

My blonde ale had a very vigorous fermentation and I needed to quickly prevent a fermenter-bomb so I used my siphon tube as a blowoff tube. Placed it in a glass of star-san.

However I want to keg 2 batches tomorrow morning before work, and forgot about it. Can i wash/rinse/sanatize that tubing and reuse it for my siphon? It's a little discolored on the end (where it was submerged in star-san), and has some gunk from the krausen that overflowed, but it should still be sanatized from before, correct?

Is it safe?

Yes it's safe. Should probably soak it in oxyclean to dissolve the gunk though, then rinse thoroughly with hot water, then sanitize with StarSan before using.
