Does anyone have any tips on keeping the tube free of expanding foam after use?

This is 'not' anywhere near as good as wine~o's link. But if you find yourself without cleaner and have a hand-held/straw type can, then just giving it a squirt whilst the can is upright can at least partially help clear the straw. Sufficient that later poking the dried stuff out is easier, anyway - it certainly isn't good enough to clear a gun.

This 'only' works on cans which need to be used inverted, as they kick out gas instead of foam when upright. Obviously, point it at a rag or something when doing this. And don't overdo it, as you will be wasting the gas needed to push the remaining foam out of the can.

BTW, if you do jobs which use multiple hand-held cans in succession then using the same straw throughout will leave you with spare unused ones, which can be handy.
