Question Does anyone know how to clean a net that has handled sick fish?

I know that you should transport a sick fish in a cup, but listen.

I PANICKED
So now that all my fish are healthy, I'll need to be using the net more often.

I don't want to re-infect my fish, so...

JUST HOW DO I CLEAN THE NET?

Ouch, would leaving it out to dry work too because the net handled an Ich fish, and Ich cysts can't survive out dry.

It could. Here is more details of what I do.

I just rinse it out in hot water to kill it all and then leave it out to dry. The rinse it in hot again. Leave it out to dry and I haven't had any problems.

Also, forgot to mention let the net dry out completely. It you want to just dry it out to kill the Ich.
