Still the good ole hypochlorite thing. Chlorox (Dan Klorix in Germany)
1:10 is perfect (killing them micro bastards!). Timing is quite important:
there is no rule (you'll have to try it out, again...). I sterilize seeds
until they just begin to bleach (not all species did germinate, however).

Kind regards
