cleans esophageal tubeI have always had a hard time getting the tube on my esophageal feeder clean. To fix this problem, I started using a bore snake for cleaning firearms.

I pour some soap down the tube, run the bore snake under water and push it down the tube. Then I run water through the tube until all the soap is washed out. I found that a 30-caliber bore snake fits perfectly for my esophageal feeder.
