I used to clean them with xylene but now I don't clean them at all.  I was
told by the Surgipath rep. when they brought me a sample of their new blades
that cleaning theirs is detrimental to the coating that allows them to cut
well.  I don't know about the other brands.

I am very curious as to how many of you clean your disposable blades before 
use.  If you do clean, what do you use?

Thanks for answering my curiosity.
