Bleach works fine. A 10% bleach solution (1 cup/9 cups water), left on for 10 minutes is inexpensive (just buy a spray bottle) and will kill just about anything. Yes, you absolutely need to rinse well! VERY well. Let all bleached equipment stand dry and empty for at least a day after rinsing. Bleach breaks down relatively quickly.

I use bleach to disinfect all my materials periodically and to clean used tanks. Never had any issue. Use the cheap plain bleach - no fragrances or additives.
Gloves are recommended, and eye protection.

Vinegar is good for the water stains.
