Default Starsan/Bottling Question

So I realized that I let about 1.5 gallons of starsan solution (most of the volume being water of course) in my bottling bucket for 2 or so weeks. My tube to syphon from primary to bottling bucket was also in there (it floated but there was solution in maybe the bottom third of the tubing). Will this cause any problems? Is it bad to leave starsan in a container for that long?

Also, my tube now looks a little cloudy. Is there a way to get rid of that/What is the best way to sanitize a tube?

As long as the StarSan is still clear, it is probably fine. It won't hurt the bucket and the cloudiness on the tube is normal. I mix up StarSan with distilled water in a 5 gallon bucket and use it for months or until it runs out.
