    I think you should soak them in warm bleech solution for about 10 mins (a tinyyyy amount of bleech) then stick them in the oven for about 30 mins on around 180 or something like that. Thats what I did and my wood seems fine. You just have to make sure it's hardy wood mind, as it can get weak after all this!

    Take a large pot, and fill it with water while the log is inside, and then boil it for half an hour
