    So I am going to be heat treating, and wanted to know how everyone else was able to "sterilize" the following items (so did you heat treat them, or vacuum them, or do something else?)

    1) DSLR Camera (I have a Canon Rebel)
    2) Pens (I have a collection from Japan)
    3) Paints (acrylics, goache, watercolor)
    4) Lotions/toilettries - did you throw them all away or just put in a plastic bag?

    Does anyone know how to sterilize plastic bottles and bags that won't be going into the heat treatment?

    Have you tried reaching out to the PCO who will be doing the heat treatment? They usually have pretty detailed instructions for prep work.

    If it's expensive and can be removed then I would remove it.
    I don't know if nuvon strips are safe for those items but if they are, I would do that.

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.
