Placing them inside a dishwasher after cleaning inside will still provide the sterilization benefits.
Hot water and dish soap along with a dish rag hooked on to a long wire and then pushed inside to allow to roll around inside for cleaning. Make sure the wire is secure to be able to pull the dishrag back out. A bottle brush used for cleaning wine jugs can also be effective.
Dish soap used with a bleach mixture to provide disinfection inside is probably advisable.

To rinse fill under running hot water sitting in a sink until the dish soap and suds overflow out the top and only clear water is exiting.
