To clean a rock

What's the best way to clean a rock before putting it in a tank. Obviously a pressure washer to start and let it dry a few days but is there anything else that needs to be done.

Step 1: bless it thoroughly
Step 2: submerge in holy water
. Good to go!!


In all seriousnes you Could soak it in some form of cleaning agent (bleach, chlorine, etc) then do a long soak in clean rodi water, then let air dry

Let it sit in the sun for a few days, then soak and rinse it multiple times.
