I use a wallpaper tray to clean and sanitize longer items like racking canes, auto-siphons, spoons, tubing and beverage out dip tubes.  It works great.  These also work well for storing longer items.  If you’re going to store things in these, I would recommend stacking a couple together to give them some extra strength.

2/22/19 9:30 AM Central: these have dropped to just… $3.99. That’s the best historical direct from Amazon price I found, notwithstanding Lighting Deals or coupons. Shipping is also free to many US addresses, with a qualifying order, as part of the Amazon’s Add On promotion. In my opinion, considering the size of these from a shipping perspective, this is a crazy good price.  Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly.
