It looks like there is some drops of milk in my pump tubing. What is the best way to clean that out? I have a Medela Advanced if that makes a difference...

Do you have any of the steam clean bags? That seems to be the only way to clean it without making making more drops of liquid. I also mix up hot water and soap in a bottle and pour that through the tubing, then run hot water through it and let it dry on it's own. Works well, but takes forever to dry and sometimes drops of water remain. Annoying!

Pour a few drops of rubbing alcohol through the tubing to clean...it dries pretty quickly.
