Put some pbw or oxyper in a keg run into lines and leave for 30mins then flush with starsan.

I usually do this although noticed one of my lines has some white staining on it from something

I'm sure there will be more thorough methods mentioned here, but I run a couple of litres of HOT water through mine every couple of weeks. Helps to rinse the beer out on the keg at the same time.

My process is:
Mkae up a solution of cold water and Soidium metasilicate and run through all lines and taps. I leave it for 20 minutes and purge a little. I do this a few times until the tap runs clear. Then run all of the Sodium metasilicate out - keg and lines. Rinse the keg well with cold water and add a good amount of boiling water to the keg, say 3 litres. Then rinse all taps and lines with this boiling water. I then run all of the water out of the lines leaving them full of CO2 only, and a little residual water from the boiling water rinse. Let the taps and lines cool and fill em with your best brew.

From time to time, I strip the taps out completely and soak for a few days, clean reall well, grease and reassemble. I find this make a big difference. I don'w do all taps at once, normall just one at a time, so I still have 2 in service.

Fear.

I have a keg of Soda Water for the kids and just run that through the lines once or twice a week. Everytime I change the keg I run hot water through the lines then a little bit of starsan.
