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.
