Couldnt you just use a pipe cleaning brush?

if you do need a cleaner, then I would just use ISO

i've cleaned alot of glass objects with iso before

I just soak mine in a 1 to 1 bleach/water solution.

What would Honey Badger do?

Yep, soak in bleach water for half an hour or so, the algae just falls off

Works good for diffusers too

Try 10 to 1 H2O to Bleach. I used to be an Sales & Ops mgr fior a commercial cleaning co. I think you'll get the same results and save some money + not fry for sinuses.

BTW - That's the ratio they recommend for Mold Abatement jobs.
