another cleaning question

So I cleaned all the equipment, all that is left is a substantial box of asst tubing -airhose size and what I am assuming is the tubing off the multiple tank cleaning/draining/filling tubes I have, as well as a couple of intact tank cleaning/draining/filling sets - 1 *python* style, the rest 3-6 foot lengths. Is there any way to clean the tubing other than soaking in water with vinegar for hours? Is it neccesary to clean more than the outside of the airhose-some of it is blue silicone not clear plastic

i must confess I don't really bother cleaning the hoses on the filters. Air-hose I replace as needed.

I agree with Delapool, just replace. Years ago, I stripped 18awg wire, snaked it through tubing, attached random cloth, sponges or cotton and pulled it in and out of tubing to clean it. Its much easier to purchase new.
