comment Does a replacement propane supply line have to be made of a special material?
I would not run propane through a water line - not even once. Propane molecules and water molecules have very different properties requiring different fittings and tolerances. I've had propane hoses for heaters go bad as you describe, once with nearly catastrophic consequences, so I barely trust hoses rated for propane. I'm not a plumber so I can't explain the technical details but I certainly wouldn't risk my life or property so that I could save the $14 a new hose would cost
comment How can I clean sticky and dirty hand tool's rubber?
the Goo Gone is an excellent investment, you'll be surprised at the stuff it can clean. As for DIY try vinegar it works well to cut some types of grease and sludge.
