If your pot is stainless, a razor blade and pot scrubber will do the trick. If it's aluminum, you want the oxidized layer to stay there.
For plastic tubing, a short (1hr) soak in OxyClean Free will do the trick.
Depending on your mash tun (I assume a water cooler here?) I'd go with an OxyClean soak overnight.
"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.... The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." - Thomas Jefferson, in letter to William S. Smith, 1787
