Cleaning large spider wood?

I don't have anything I can boil wood in, so I generally pour boiling water on it and soak it in a sealed bucket for a week (with repeated water changes) before putting it in my tank. This piece of spider wood is too large for my bucket though. How could I sanitize it? I did get it from a trusted aquatic store but I'd still feel better if there was a way to clean it. I know I could make it sink if I tied rocks to it so I'm not too worried about that.

Hmm, maybe a large storage bin?

That's what I would like to do but the relative I am currently staying with would most likely not be fond of that idea. If I could find something I can at least fit the thickest part of the wood in to soak, do you think that would be good enough?
