anything that kills bacteria but not yeast?

You may want to check if your yeast strains are kanamycin resistant (most
common ones are; they should have the CAN1 genotype). If yes then you want
to use it at a concentration of 20 ug/mL which does not slow the growth of
your yeast but will stop the growth of most bacteria. Kanamycin also works
fine for the rescue of hopelessly contaminated strains. Good luck.
