Leaving tubing in PBW

Just a quick question for anyone… Sometimes I forget some tubing in PBW for a little too long and it gets a permanent haze on the tubing. Would this affect anything in a negative way, and should I just be buying some beer line cleaner?

It shouldn’t affect anything if you rinsed it well (followed by sanitizing). Be sure to hang them so they dry without any liquid collecting and molding.

I definitely give it a good rinse as with everything else and hang them on my cupboard doors in the kitchen, and sanitizing is a given, but it’s good to know I’m not ruining my tubing.

Thanks for the reply!

Soak it briefly in a weak acid solution, like some distilled vinegar and water. As long as the surface hasn’t been etched, it should clean it right off.

I boil water and put and the tubing in to soak.
