So, my Nathan hydration pack tube got mouldy. Eww. I left the pack full of electrolyte drink for 5 days and the tube got black mould. I gave that mould a beautiful place to live: warm, wet and full of sugar! So I tried to figure out a way to clean it with no special equipment. I didn't have anything that long that would go through the tube.

So I improvised:

I got a very long shoelace and tied one end in a large knot. I slipped the aglet end into the tube (with the attachment ends removed) and when it got stuck to the sides I gave the tube a whack, and eventually I was able to snake the whole length of the tube. When I pulled the wet shoelace through, the knot scrubbed the sides. I repeated twice.

However, this week it was back after I left the pack for a few days again (bad habit, gross too!). This time I poured salt down the tube once the shoelace was in it, and then coated the knot in salt and when I pulled it through it super scrubbed the tube. It came out beautifully clean. Then I rinsed with hot water and left to dry.

Anyway, who needs a 20 buck tube brush?!?
