Re: my first taste of DM
Soak it! Put some vinegar (like 2 tbsp) and then fill it up with water, nearly all the way. the hose port should be full and the handle should be filled 1/2 way with water. Then jam the hose port into where the mouth piece goes. Hold them together and mix it all around a few times, then prop it up, make sure it's tight, and soak over night.
That's how I got rid of my mizo watermelon ghosted hose.
