How do you clean a recently used plunger that has one of those lips inside that trap the water and debris when using?

I soak mine for a few hours in a one cup bleach to one bucket of hot water solution (I have one bucket that is devoted to this only).

I rinse it off in the stationary tub, then shake it out good.

Sometimes it takes a few shakes to get the yuck out. I let it dry in the sun (just a few minutes as too much sun can rot the rubber).
