Title: Left some keg jumpers in starsan...
Post by: phillamb168 on August 01, 2011, 12:07:40 PM
For about two weeks. When I pulled them out they were slippery to the touch, and after "drying" they're now quite sticky. Have I ruined them completely? I thought StarSan was OK with plastic?

It's just the soap from StarSan.  You can rinse them off with water or soak them in some fresh StarSan.
No damage done.
Cheers

I did wash them off, and they're still a bit tacky.

Let them sit out for a few weeks.
They will harden again.
And do not do it again  ;)

I've had the same thing happen with the line, and I've found it always stays pretty tacky.  Maybe I just don't wash it well enough.  I just replace the line, and don't do it again.  Until next time I do it. ;)

Ok, ok, I'll replace them. Durn it.

Wait, this is the connectors or the line?  For connectors I would try soaking them in a variety of things to see if they would come clean.  Maybe vinegar would help take the stuff off?  It's worth a try.  For line, I would just replace it.
