Question How should I rinse test vial for test kit

I have the API Ammonia test kit which uses the liquid droppers and a glass vial with plastic cap. I was wondering if the remnants of chemicals on the vial could contaminate or poison the water when it is dipped in to collect the water. Is a triple rinse in tap water sufficient?

60-gallon:1common Pleco, 1 bristle-nose Pleco,9 neon tetras,2 pearl gouramis, 1 gold twin-bar platie, 2 pineapple swordtails, 1 golden panda molly.

A rinse should be fine. Id encourage to do so anyway, once finished to avoid staining.
