can i wash and reuse bacterial heat set slides?

high school teacher here....new microbio course....with all these gram stain slides i have....do i have to autoclave and toss them all in trash?
If i soak in soap will the heat set bacteria come off enough that i can autoclave and reuse them? I hate to waste them! thank you!
