Just soak them in some hot water for a day and they should be fine

Well since its coming from a garden supply the rocks should be clean, soaking them for a short time will get any excess dust etc. off the rocks. Unless they are dirty IMO I don't see a reason for the power washing.

Personally i would just hose them off and scrub with an algae brush or something similar, but to be really thorough soak in warm water for 24 hrs first and then spary and scrub. You can never be too careful! I love those rocks!!!! i have a ton around my koi and goldie pond. Good Luck!
