You don't need to autoclave TBS if you are going to use it only for
westerns, though filtering it is a good habit.   How do you adjust the
pH?? I mean what acid do you use?

I'm having trouble keeping 1X TBS solution clear/transparent. It 
becomes cloudy after a couple of days. I make it by diluting 10X 
TBS solution and then adjusting the pH to 7.3. I don't autoclave 
after that. Is that the reason why it gets cloudy?
