Cathy,

Yes you can reuse them. First clean off old dried media or soil from the trays with water and a brush. Then dip the clean trays in a 10% bleach water (1part bleach to 9 parts water) solution for about a minute. Allow them to dry and they'll be disinfected and ready for use.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
