Default Getting milking/muddy water off mono.

Came back from river fishing - left a good stain/scum on the line. Will using the line again in clearer water likely remove the stuff or talking the spool off and soaking in soapy water do the trick?

Rick,
Since it is mono line and inexpensive, remove the line from the spool.

Remove the spool from the reel. Wash the spool in soapy water using a brush to get it clean.

Replace the spool on the reel. Respool the reel with the line of your choice and go fishing.

Best Wishes

I wouldn't worry about it, maybe look at it the night before your next trip. Replace if you feel its compromised in any way.

If its driving you crazy, pull off a cast and a half(or 1.5 of the line you had out) and reel it back in pinching the line with a damp towel between your fingers.

Mostly just curious. And a little anal. This was flour and usually use green colored mono where it’s not as obvious. I did “ wash” the spool. Not sure how effective that will be deep in the spool.
Rag pinch in retrieve makes most sense.
As said replace if questionable - not sure how this could compromise the line.
But I don’t like looking at it....

KVD line and lure. Walk around the back yard or go to a field/park and peel off as much line as you can, then spray the KVD on a soft towel and reel the line through it. Will clean and condition the line
