Drying tubing

How important is it to get your tubing dry after cleaning? I have a hard getting all the water out, especially the longer tubes. Will they mold if left wet too long? Thanks.

They will if left flat for water to pond up. Best way to dry them is to hang them so the sanitizer runs out.

Another way to get them drier (not completly dry) is to swing them over you head. The centrifugal force, or is that centripetal force (Never could get those straight) will force some of the water out of the tubing.

If I remember correctly, centrifugal is the force that is throwing the object outward, and the centripetal is the force that is holding the object to the center.

that’s my MO. rinse them, dip them in starsan, swing them around and then hang them to dry. No issues yet.
