What if I let my night guard out all day and forgot to wash it after waking up?

Do I need to replace it or do a deep clean now? Will antibacterial soap and a toothbrush be enough to clean it completely this time?

Update:

I have the answer. The nurse advice line said i can splash some Listerine over it and then thoroughly wash and rinse it again if I forgot to wash it in the morning.

    I regularly leave my nightguard out.  I tend to wash it with antibacterial soap, rinse well and then clean with toothpaste.

    Not had any problems.
