Default Idophor staining?!?

This morning, I sanitized my racking cane and hydro testing stuff (wine theif, hydro and graduated cylinder). I left them in for about ten minutes. When I pulled all of them out, there is noticable color in the plastic hose on my racking cane. Should I just pick a new one up, or is it not a big deal?
EDIT: I used the standard capfull of ido for 2.5 gal water.

I will say my brew I was testing is about ready. 60 degree wheat beer tastes GOOOD out of a grad cylinder.

That is the problem with Iodophor along with Longevity. I switched to Star San.

I understand the ever going debate between star-san and idophor, but can I still use the cane, or do i need to buy a new one?

You can use it, The more stained it gets the harder it will be able to see whats getting sucked through it.

You can still use it. No worries.
