Do you find that you get crystal deposits in your carboy when you use oxiclean? I have read that some people get them and it's hard to remove.

No problem with that, but I do get a bit of a white film sometimes, so after cleaning with OxiClean and rinsing with tap water, I rinse with some white vinegar (acid) and water, then after rinsing that out, I do a final rinse with a quart or so of distilled water so it will dry without any water spots. This last step isn't really necessary, but I like my Better Bottles to look like new.
