sterilizing equipment

With my recent out break of ich, and getting that under control, I'm curious how you all go about sterilizing your syphon hoses, etc. I've just been running everything under very hot water for a couple minutes. Is this effective?

And let everything dry out in between use ... most aquatic bugs can't survive drying.
