Re: Well this sucks!
I always washout my hoses with a mix of baking soda and lemon juice that has a constancy of cake frosting. I push it into the hose, fill what room is left with hot water and let it stand an hour. About once a month or so I shake a bit of Smoke Out Annihilator for a few seconds, empty it out and let it dry. Never had an issue with ghosts but I don't have a narbish so it could be that they aren't using a good grade of plastic for the inner liner.
