Carboys - 1 scoop ox Oxyclean Free 9 no scent or dye). Put blowoff tube in carboy. Let soak. When done soaking hook blowoff tube to autosiphon and siphon the water with oxyclean out of the carboy ( this cleans the inside of the tube ).

Soak the tubes with PBW. Scrub them out with a blowoff tube brush . Use the PBW in a solution of water in the carboy & scrub the carboy with a carboy brush.

Relax and crack a cold one when you're done and let us know how everything went.:mug:

See? That wasn't so hard. Next!

I clean tubes and hoses in a bucket then pour the oxy clean into the carboy and shake it up. Get out your carboy brush and work it over with that. Pour that back into a spare bucket to save and rinse the carboy at.
