Cleaning old siphon tubing...

Ive tried looking for ways online, but all google gives me is how to clean your fish tank, or cleaning siphons for home beer brewing systems!
The old siphon i have has developed black/brown spots in it, and id like to remove them. Also, one of my newer ones had gotten a smell/taste so horrible it makes me not want to use it! I do suck on the end of this one, so i CAN taste this dead fish smell, though the a simple hose with the larger part on the end, no places for any debris to get stuck, and looks relatively spotless!
Is there anything i can do? A soak? Water changes have started turning my stomach!!!

I got a "MagFox" hose cleaner. It is a magnetic cleaning tool where you put a small magnet backed brush, (not unlike a piece of hook side Velcro), in the tube. Then use the main magnet to move the brush through the hose. Haven't had a chance to really put it through its paces. Came recommended by several TPT members. And it's under ten bucks!

Heck, even with a MagFox, the Weedeater line with a brush sounds great! What a great way to supplement/compliment the cleaning setup!
