Re: Average hose lifespan - unwashable
Course I didn't! Ruined 2 hoses that way . .this is kinda my 6th. And I never washed it - just smaked it hard against the floor and blew thru it. Got a teaspoon of rust and residue.
Just put it on teh heater to dry out completely so I can give it a more thorough cleaning by running stem brush thru it, tied with a string. Usually buys me a couple more weeks until I HAVE to buy a new one.
