I am having quite a bit of trouble cleaning glass fly vials.  My current procedure is as follows: autoclave, pull plugs, rinse, wash.  The trouble is that our washer does not remove the pupal cases.  I have tried changing the cycle numerous times and am going to try using a different soap.  Nothing seems to work though.  If anyone could please let me know how they wash glass vials at their facility and what kind of washer they use, I would really appreciate it.  THANKS!
