I claim no hard evidence on this. But if it were my situation, I would soak them in methyl hydrate.

Folks, I've looked into this further, and I'm going to walk back on that statement. It turns out that methanol is the poorest of the alcohols from a disinfecting perspective. It's a great solvent and cleaner, so perhaps useful as part of a process, but not a reliable disinfectant. Apologies for the misinformation.
