^^This. You will throw your nasty Keg Lube away. It washes away in hot water.
Which washes away in hot water, Keg Lube or CIP??

I'm assuming CIP.  Keg Lube is pretty hard to remove.  I can't stand it.

Sorry, the CIP removes completely in 120F water. Threw my old Keg Lube away.

I prefer good old olive oil. Wipe the posts with a small amount before hookup.

So CIP is soluble in water above 120 F.  Does anyone know if it's soluble to any degree in a 5% alcohol solution?  Could it affect the head on beer?
Many of us would be on a strict liquid diet if it weren't for pretzels.

I use CIP and have had no issues.

Do you just spray the lubed areas with Star San for sanitization then after lube is applied?
