Neat idea, but usually soaking and a brush is enough. For plastic carboys I'll just shove a wet towel into the carboy and swirl it around. Works like a charm assuming the crud is softened enough from soaking.

The easiest way to clean a carboy involves next to no effort:
  1. Fill it with very warm (but not hot) water
  2. add a scoop of Oxicean
  3. let sit for an hour
  4. rinse
That's it. Rarely will you need to do more...especially if you do this before crud has a chance to dry.

That looks like a good idea, except it should be at 3 or 4 inches in diameter or across. I'll have to try that with a couple of business card magnets on a sponge.

What MrBJones said. Sometimes I need a few hours, it's amazing watching the crap fall.

I usually add a drop of bleach to some cold water, let it sit and the rinse thoroughly with hot water! Easy. Good point too about making your own. That'd be pretty easy and you could beef it up, bristles etc!
