Default Adding Citrus Rinds, Any boiling necessary? =)

Back to the boiling question... =)
I wanted to add some citrus rinds in my first mead. If i rinse the rinds throughly, is that sufficient to avoid bacteria infection? I've been told to boil the rinds, but then i think that it will alter the flavor. What is everyone's thoughts?

I have just added citrus by washing well before zesting.

You add the zest in the primary, correct?
