No probs ! The companies all tell you to dispose - they would wouldn't 
they ! But if you wash them in a similar way to Tissue Culture Glassware 
- bleach wash, hcl rinse and loadsa loadsa distilled water (and then 
more) you can go on using them. They are never quite as good as the 
first time but saves you loads.
Try it anyway,
