Hey guys just wondering the best way to sanitize driftwood not store bought but local and also another piece that has been given to me and it was used with snakes that at some point may of had mites its a good $60 piece of driftwood so I would really like to keep it and use it with my beardies im just looking for advice and any ideas or even if I should chuck it and not take the chance of it still having any trace of mites or anything else in the end my animals health and wellbeing come first I can always buy another piece of driftwood😊

Oven set at 250f for a few hours depending on how thick the piece is.

Scrub it with hot soapy water, rinse well with diluted vinegar and let it dry in the sun for a couple days
