I am gearing up for pumping again. I have a Pump In Style that has not been used in about 3 years. Back them, I had some issues keeping the tubes clean. I had been boiling them, and they turned cloudy inside and didnít seem clean. It seemed that the boiling was counterproductive because it allowed moisture to become trapped in the tubes. I seem to recall calling Medela and being told that I could just squirt alcohol into them now and then instead. I bought new tubes and just squirted the alcohol after that and never had any more problems. Three years later, I still have those tubes. Do you think I should buy new ones or boil these just one time to be safe before following my alcohol routine? How does everyone else clean their tubes?
