Cleaning the hoses of your canister filter

I'm not sure how to go about doing it. Just before my tank was cycled I went through a algae bloom. My hoses have nasty stuff in it. Or I should say what's the best way!! Lol

Thanks

I have an API filstar xp

Pipe cleaners tied to a string that you can pull through and hot water.
