Refractometer after use...

How do you guys keep you refractometer after each use? Do you put it back to the box for protection? Or leave it out to dry.

I dry it with a kleenex and put it on the shelf. Mine does not see the box since I use it often. Hopefully that will change soon.

Whatever you do, make sure you clean off ALL of the water after using it. I didnt take much time in making sure I did this and now I am having to order a new lense (the part that flips down to mash the water against the eye of the refractometer). Also I put mine back in the case as well..
