Question Water Testing Setup

1. How do you folks set up your water testing equipment?
2. And how do you clean your test tubes and lids?


I worry that the test tubes don't get clean enough with simple rinsing and that could cause problems with the readings. I have a combination of what came with my new API Master Test Kit and a plastic insert from an old API test kit, (it had pills you had to dissolve), which has been handy since it has a nifty way to line the tubes up and a place to set the card from the new kit.

Right now they are right next to my sewing machine, but I am hoping to be able to come up with a put-away-able workstation.

Ideas please?

A good rinse out with hot water and letting them dry out completely between uses is enough. As for there storage, mine ended up under a whole lot of stuff in my fish junk cupboard so I can't help there.
