I have a hydration pack that sat in storage over winter. I pulled it out last weekend, and I found that the tube from bladder to bite valve has a thin white coating inside it. I tried rinsing them out first with a mild bleach solution, then a vinegar one. Neither of these removed the stuff from the tube. If I squish the tube, the coating comes away from the tube. How can I remove this gunk from the tube? Would I be better off buying new tubes instead of cleaning?

I run a small website for a sport I enjoy and am passionate about - traffic is good (at least I'm happy) and in the last few weeks I've been starting to get some press coverage. All good so far... A PR company have asked me to submit a 'media pack' - I have no idea what that is, or what might be included in there - I have asked the contact, but I'm thinking I should try and get ahead of the game.

I can go all day without smoking a cigarette if my mind is on something else, but when I have them I go through half a pack to three quarters of a pack a day. Is this normal? I know that some people lack a way to properly break down nicotine in their bodies, requiring less smoking per day. Does this have something to do with it?
