Rather than bleach, use h2o2 (hydrogen peroxide) to control the nasties. That and an air pump and stone.

I find that they grow a little bit of mold/mildew on them (It looked just like it?) if you leave them inside a chest freezer to ferment a carboy (since you end up with some condensation when you cold crash or if its hot out). I sometimes run them through the washing machine :shrug:
