Cleaning Hanna PH Tester

Hey Guys,

I just bought a Hanna PH Tester but it hasnt arrived yet.

When using it in your planted tank, you will expose it to Fungus, Bacteria and Protozoans.

How do you clean your PH Tester?

There are a lot of ways to properly clean including bleach or H2O2. HCl and KCl are most commonly used in labs, and we use potassium chloride in a heated solution at our schools.

I generally clean mine with H2O2 but I feel like I have to recalibrate after every cleaning to be on the safe side. KCl is a better option since it also makes a good solution to store the probe in - I just haven't bought any yet
