Our solution was to rinse the cuvettes with distilled water (we used a
cuvette cleaner for UV-Vis cells), then immerse them in 70% ethanol in a
laminar flow hood and let them dry overnight (open) in the hood with the
UV lamp on. The next morning, replace the caps and use them as usual.
I am not sure how many times the cuvettes can be re-used. I used the
same batch of two dozen for 1.5 years and finished my post-doc before
the cuvettes quit :-).
