    Scrub everything in hot soapy water with some bleach added, then dry thoroughly, that's all. Don't get the pure bleach on your clothes, as it is very potent and can burn holes in your clothes, that's why you have to dilute it, not a bad idea to wear rubber cloves to protect your hands.

    yeah, just throw it all in the bathtub with hot water and some bleach and a little dish soap, then rinse VERY well and you're good to go.

    One part bleach to nine parts water will give you a 10% solution. That should do the trick. After washing, allow everything to sun dry if possible.
