Any way to clean tubing? - Page 2

post #11 of 29
I cut up an old sock and tired it to some wire. Then I passed the wire through the tubing, and pulled the sock through. After a few passes, tube was crystal clear.

You just have to tie it real good... Good luck if you get the sock suck in the middle of the tubing!

Make sure peroxide isnt very acidic, otherwize it WILL result in a chemical explosion! I know Bleach is a base, but be sure to make sure peroxide is not very acidic. For the post above, isnt it hydrochloric acid?

As Paul knows, I know little about chemistry.

From my limited knowledge, I believe base+acid may indeed neutralize each other, it's just that "neutralization" may involve explosions, poisonous gasses, etc.

For example, mixing chlorine (bleach) and ammonia is supposed to be a *very* bad idea. Poisonous gasses, I believe.

If they are weak (greater than 1.5 or lesser than 12.5) otherwise yes, they will neutralize after a chemical explosion.
