After bottling, it is important to clean your carboy before things left behind start to harden. I rinse with hot water and use carboy brushes to keep everything clean. If there are stubborn stains and scale in the top of my carboy I add about 1 inch of cleaner / sanitizer to the carboy. The Home Vintner sells holeless bungs which I put in the top of the carboy and turn it upside down in
my laundry sink. 24 hours later it is like brand new. Cleaner / sanitizer also works great on the stubborn coffee stains in your coffee pot.
