i forgot about a bucket full of starsan for 2 weeks and it had my siphon hose submerged in it. i took it out today and there is this white film like coloring on the inside. i soaked it in oxyclean but didnt do anything. anyone experience this before and if so did you go ahead and use it anyway? im probably just paranoid...

Yeah, I have some cloudy tubing too; mine came from a 72 hour Oxiclean soak. I still use it, no worries.

It is fine to use. Mine is the same way.
