Ya know, if you guys would list where you live there just may be someone close by that could help....just a thought.

Other than that I'd go with bleach. Just be sure to rinse well with a lot of hot water.

Bleach is fine and you don't need to rinse with Sterile water ... I've never once used "sterile" water and have never had an infection. But, if it makes you feel better by all means spend a couple extra hours boiling or buying sterile water.

Well it depends on how clean you want to be. It isn't a matter of 'feeling better'...Infections can certainly come from tap water though...sanitizing and then rinsing with tap water just undid the sanitizing...
