I used some dollar store oxyclean on my 5 gal carboy and now there is some kind of streaking near the top that I cannot get off for the life of me. I've soaked with real Oxy over night and scrubbed but it's still there. I've tried bleach.. still there.. Are there any solvents or acids that I could use?
Thanks in advance!

Star-San is mildly acidic, soak in Star-San solution for a few hours. That should remove the oxyclean residue.
