I also whip them around a few times to get the majority of the moisture out before using the above mentioned inverted U drying technique. Warning, watch out for the ceiling fan blades.

Perhaps I go to extremes, but I rinse out all my hoses with hot water and place in a bleach bath overnight, rinse with hot water and hit it with star-san and dry.

I rinse everything thoroughly and then scrub the crud out of my fermenting bucked with Brewmasters cleaner, rinse verything again. SOAK everything with sanitising solution, then put everything into the fermenter, including hoses, measuring cups and spoons, spare bits an dpieces, give teh fermenter another dozen sprays of snaitiser, then seal it all up tight with an airlock fitted and filled and put ti away into the cabinet, out of the heat and light.

When I get it back out to use it, everythign is still soaked with sanitiser, so I just drip dry everything and use it!

I soak in hot water with PBW and then run hot water through it and drip dry hanging up so water will not collect in the tubing. Water that stays in a tube is a bad thing. If your tubing looks bad then replace it. Trying to clean the inside of tubing can be done in a pinch by using a stiff wire with a loop of cloth attached to the end of it and dragging it through the tube while soaking it in PBW. Be careful not to scratch the inside of the tubing with the wire!
