Some of the newer caps are especially pesky because they have so many nooks and crannies. If you wash it with water, the water will never evaporate on its own and will cause mold or bacteria or fungus. So how does one clean these newer style caps? The newer Tokina front caps are especially annoying.

One idea I thought of is to get hold of some dessicant packets, and to wash the cap, dry it as well as possible, and then place it in a bag with the dessicant.

Any other ideas?
