Yes in a little bag but if your dishwasher has a little compartment in the cutlery stand with a lid it you don't need a bag.

Mine go in the dishwasher in the silverware compartment. I don't have a lid on my compartment, and I don't have a bag. You just make sure you stick a few tips in each section, then put enough silverware in each to prevent them from flying out. Works wonderfully.

i don't. I put them in a saucepan with a drop of dish liquid and bring to a boil, stir them around and let them sit in the hot soapy water for a while. Then i rinse with hot tap water.

I do, in the silverware basket compartment with the lid, but not before I use the tiny little "bottle" brush tip cleaner on them to scrape the icing out. For some reason if I dont do this they come out of the dishwasher with icing remnants stuck inside. HTH

one of the best tips for cleaning tips i learned here on CC.

I put them in a glass bowl and cover with water (at least 1" over the top of them) and a drop of dishsoap. Put them in the microwave for 10 minutes and then rinse with hot water. Same effect as boiling them on the stove, just a lot quicker for me. Plus the steam loosens everything in the microwave for easy cleaning (since others in the house don't know how to cover up food)

And yes it's ok to put the metal in the microwave b/c it is covered 100% by the water so no sparking.
