 Hello Electroporating people.

How do you sterilize the single-use cuvettes from Bio-rad ?
I don't want to throw the cuvettes after one Zapp and I
wonder if you have some great method for this. 
I guess that you first rinse them with water or something
directly after the Zapp and then you use ethanol to sterilize with, 
and then letting them dry, but don't you get a layer of dead cells 
after a short while on the aluminium ?
