I use somethign called B-Brite, from the LHBS. A 10-15 minute soak is all that's needed to break up all the nasties. No scrubbing or effort required.

I think it's similar to OxyClean, but I've never used OxyClean to make a comparison.
When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.

American Brown Ale
Secondary 1:
Sam Adams clone
Secondary 2:
Secondary 3: Empty

Bottled: Pilsner, Pale Ale III, Oktoberfest

I must have really been mean to my carboy - one day soaking with oxyclean and I still can't scrub away the remanents of a ring near the top. It sure is hard to get and sort of serious scrubbing done with a carboy brush though. I'll let it sit one more day...

OxiClean, bleach, star-san. I go with the three-tiered method now that my buckets are "seasoned".

PBW. It has never failed me, and I use the same carboys since I started brewing a year ago. I've never scrubbed them.
