    $\begingroup$ About the only way I can think of is throw out the old ones and use new ones. $\endgroup$ – Jon Custer Aug 13 '19 at 13:01
  • $\begingroup$ I agree with the comments, but maybe it does not matter much? If the tubes are completely opaque, then you need new tubes. $\endgroup$ – Ed V Aug 15 '19 at 2:10
