Any equipment that comes into direct contact with your body, especially; Mask, Snorkel and Regualtors, should be cleaned with anti-microbial soap (Like those used in Hospitals) to prevent infections.
Wetsuits and Drysuits should also be cleaned, rinsed and dried after every dive. BCD's should also be cleaned inside and out, with all dump valves checked and cleaned. Most all other dive equipment maybe just washed and rinsed in freash water. And stored clean and dry.
