The old fashioned way to clean tissue culture glassware
is just to soak in chromic acid overnight. Then rinse in distilled h2o 
followed by ultrapure h2o then air dry and autoclave

P.S. I would be careful about putting anything platsic or metal into the 
chromic acid it might not come out again :)
