seed cleaning and sanitizing / insect eggs!
I have a decent collection of fruit and vegetable seeds from over the last summer, and I'm looking for a good way to make sure there's no more fleshy residue on them without damaging the seedcoats. My roommate suggested a rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide but I'm concerned that these might prevent the seeds from germinating later.
The prominent issue at hand is that I've just noticed a couple sets of seeds (kiwi, kiwano, cherry) have some insect eggs (probably fruit fly) mixed with them in the paper I've stored them in. I'd like to simultaneously eliminate the eggs and clear off the residue that attracted them in the first place. Help!
