I used a clear plastic (vinyl?) tube as a blow off hose and it filled up with yeast. I soaked it in oxyclean then in bleach solution. all the 'bits' are gone but it still has a yellow tinge to it. is the tube safe to use to fill bottles etc?

As long as all the bits are gone and you use your normal sanitizer, I'd go ahead and use it.

Sometimes a bleach solution can change the color of vinyl. If in doubt, do the oxyclean again and then bleach again. If you are still worried I would replace the tube. Spending another couple bucks for piece of mind might be worth it.
