    If its really bad, you can buy either a new bldder or a new tube.
    Theres a cleaning kit for them if i remember right. Got those bottle cleaner things in and some other stuff in, but cant remember what they are.

    Milton sterilising tablets. £2 from the chemist, should last the year.

    Cleaning tabs won't remove the mould.

    Camleback used to make a cleaning kit. Alternatively I have used a bit of wire and dragged through a string with a knot on the end, which worled well.

    To avoid the tube getting mouldy in the first place then store it in the freezer after use.
