Default Stupid thermometer question

I have a stupid question. We used to use a hospital, stick it in yer ear, thermometer. I had to change, and we now have a digital one, plastic, with a metal tip about an inch long, that goes in the mouth, under arm, etc. How do I properly sterilize it after use? With the ear one, it was the ear...and there were disposible tip covers. This new one, I don't want to break or ruin, 'cause you know I'd never find another if I needed it.

Oh, and packaging is long gone, so no instructions.

I have a spray bottle, (small), with 1/2-1/2 Listerine & water. Spray, then wipe after a minute or two. Works & if you get a minty flavour or something, tastes better.

That's fine if you have taste buds in your armpit or your ear..,
