I'd wash them. steralizing them is probably enough, but it takes about 2 1/2 minutes to wash them, and you don't know where they've been sitting or for how long.
as to how i steralize, i boil them, but i dont' like it. i wish i had a pressure cooker, but my cash flow is going the wrong way right now.

I soked my new jars in 10% bleach and 90%water for 5 hours then washed and rinsed them real well. If I had a pressure cooker at the time I would just pop em in for 15 min at 15PSI and be done with it......
