If you want to start over and have no bb then go with cooking the rock. But I'd seed it with a few pieces of live rock and live sand when you set it up again.

Check that out. It's recharging your live rock. But in your case I'd soak it in fresh water for a little first or let it dry out to kill everything if that's what you really want. I like using dry rock because it's cheap and you can build your own setup basically. Just as long as you cook it first to get all the dust and crap off first.

I've heard that covering it well with bubble gum works. But I've never tried it.

If you wanna save bacteria wrap rocks in newspaper and then dip it in saltwater. That's how most places ship LR

I'm not sure about that except for drying it up or a bit. You could do that and seed it with some base rock (base rock has a smaller chance of having thoes unwanted pests)
