If drift wood is too big to boil, can you soak it in bleach-water in, say, a

Paul, I would be very leary of soaking wood in the tub.  The folks at
Aquarium Driftwood told me that one of their customers "stored" some of
their wood in the bathtub because it was received before their tank was
ready.   The wood & their tank developed a terrible fungus - they believe it
came from the bathtub funk:)

Try a new plastic trash can that is large enough for the piece of wood.
