    Sorry to add to this but whats everyone preferred method of post-dive cleaning/sterilization of the valves/hoses?

    Reading some of the older posts, it seems while common practice Vinegar isn't actually that great (link). So just curious.

    I use 50/50 rubbing alcohol and water, but the alcohol is hard to find now due to the stupid plague.

    I use a cheap ((.99 cents) condiment bottle with a mix of 50/50 water / alcohol mix. Just a little cleans it out, like one little squirt. If you really want you could clean with straight water, then use a small shot of 50/50. It's just pee, you just don't want any sitting in there...don't overthink it. (but for sure clean it).

    Yeah, I wasn't thinking anything crazy. I also don't want a UTI either.

    Yes...or maybe clear liquor will work too. Same difference. Vodka? I'm sure someone at the dive site is holding out.
