It would probably be better to wrap them individually in foil with the needle guard on before you PC them so that you can use them individually without contaminating. you could then put it in a jar with a small amount of water maybe insert a shot glass and place the needles in it so that they are not sitting in standing water when they cool down. I have not tried this but I am thinking of going this route next time. Also I imagine boiling a pot of water and suck/squirting it through the needle would probably be pretty effective.

AFOAF puts all his needle tips in a sealed jar of rubbing alcohol and pulls them out one at a time when he needs them.

What I do is sterilize the needle right before use. Unless you can package the sterilized needles in an airtight, sealed, sterile environment-like the packagig they come in when you buy them, they won't stay sterile for long-making it pointless to sterilize them in bulk.
