Every fish store i've ever worked in bleaches them, and when they get real bad they use muriatic acid on them. a little overkill IMO.

If I want to clean something.. I soak it in bleach and let it air dry for 24 hours.

i think the only reason i get buildup is because i dont always wash them right after i do tests. sometimes i just leave them sitting over night with the test still in them. i have a terrible habit of forgeting them till i need them again
