    just putting it in
     
  3. Just brush them off, or hose them down and then after they're dry, put 'em in!

    If you want to sterilize them, bake in the oven 150degrees for 10 min

    I have an old laundry hamper that I fill with hot water and disinfectant, (some people on here have posted doing similar in their bath tub).

    Soak the logs in there, turn occasionally.

    As others have stated, if the logs are clean and have not been sitting on the ground, you are reasonably safe, but I still go through the above process with anything going in with my beard, just to be safe.
