Best Plant Dip for sterilization/snail prevention

I am just starting a planted tank, and have some jungle val. I'm not a lover of pest snails. What would be the best dip for the jungle val and other plants to get rid of the snails?

Can’t comment on dips, etc but was just looking at a guys tank today that was over-loaded with snails. If you have room - chain or yoyo loaches are a laugh in a small group and clear out most snails.

I second the idea of loaches. I know snails are part of the ecosystem, but I hate those little pest snails that get everywhere. Here's a good video on decontaminating plants:
