Cleaning used air stones.

vinegar or hydrogen peroxide would be the wayto go for a couple of reasons, you really want the fizz reaction to be able to break down the dirt and let the fizz pull the debris away from the stone before rinsing it off whereas bleach as well as it can clean will not be able to pull the debris out of the stone and somehow you would have to reverse flow the rinse thru the stone to get the debris dislodged from the stone, micron filters you can use bleach since it will break down and clean and when you rinse you can get the water to rinse inside the filter to rinse out and away from the fabric but not as near as easy with an airstone which to reverse one of them would be virtually impossible, but as Dave said earlier, is all the effort really worth it?

soak them for a while in vinegar or in a diluted solution of muriatic acid.  rinse well - like over a few days.


This works best in my experience. Bleach won't unclog the pores. If you use the acid don't use much as it will eat the stone and all you will have left is the little piece of plastic.
