how to clean drop checker

I recently visited the Maui aquarium and a scuba diver was in a tank cleaning it with magic erasers. I buy the Walmart brand. Just get the ones without cleaner in them.

oldpunk78 Yep, inside the tank and out. Been it this way for over a year now. No issues at all.

My drop checker has a light growth of algae in it. How do you guys recommend cleaning this out? I was thinking a hydrogen peroxide or bleach soak. Thanks
