when you add the baking powder, lemon juice and warm water....
do you fill the hose half way with the solution and then swish it back in forth for about 2 minutes?
then do you let it sit like that and let the chemistry go to work for about an hour?
then rinse it out with warm water and swing around in concentric circles and hang over a door knob for 24 hours?
if your not doing all of the above then your not doing a maximum cleaning.
that is what you need to do for best results.
if your doing all that and still fail
then there is a flaw in the hose and you need a new one

This is how I did it, got the advice from CaptHowdy:

- Mix some cold (or room temperature) water with some lemon juice drops and a teaspoon of baking soda. Mix it, and let it go in the hose. Hold both end and make your hose 'move' zo the mixture kinda 'washes' the inside of the hose (if you know what I mean).

Let the mix go out and let some cold/room temperature water go through it and let it dry.

I hope it helps.

i think i found my problem. i wouldn't let it dry completely and smoke meaning the water would pick up the smoke and keep it in the hose ? just my guess. but im letting it dry till tomorrow

Hmm, can be a problem. Let us know if your problem is solved when your hose is dry!

I use a Km pro hose that i use very frequently. I have had this hose for about 5 months and luckily nothing has stuck in the hose at all. however with previous hoses i like to run water (warm if possible) through the hose, plug both ends and bang it on a wall lightly 7 or 8 times then i wash lemon juice in the hose. that seems to work well.

Please tell me you do this with washable hoses only? If not, watch out for rust.
