Do you stain Non-Gynae? Specifically breast FNAC's?

Does anyone have a problem with gunk clogging up the drain line on their 
autostainer. I have a Varistain Gemini, and the line has clogged up with
blue goo 
twice in the past 4 years. What could be the cause and how would I prevent
short of periodically taking the thing apart and reaming out the hose? 
Pouring bleach down the drain was suggested, but didn't keep the problem
Any suggestions?
