They should be fine, just rinse them off thoroughly in hot tap water!

I would actually boil them if they're not glued anywhere. make sure to kill any nasties that are left from the reptile's bacteria.

Give them a chlorine bath which will kill any residual nasties. A cup of bleach to 5 gal of water. Rinse well, put in another bucket of water and use declor.....add to tank 24 hours later just to make sure chlorine properties have dissipated.
