Soak them in live yoghurt overnight and then microwave on high for 6 minutes
each. That way they won't glow in the dark. Alternatively, you could try
wrapping your feet in cling-film first, or lacing your socks with
Trichoderma. No, the easiest solution is to bury them in the garden for 2-3
weeks and let the soil microflora sort it out. (Don't try this if you have
a dog. It will get confused).
