Betta decor from creek?

So, my betta (she was seven years old) passed on. I don't want to fall into a depression so I've been doing things tokeep myself occupied. I am wondering if it would be ok to get rocks, driftwood etc. from my creek, and then after boiling it, put it in my tank? I am getting it cleaned out today and resetting it up

The only 100% proof method of killing everything using a pressure cooker at 15 PSI and 250 degrees for 30 minutes

Not everything can withstand this though.. things may explode. So personally, I don't see it as worth the risk.

Standard methods when you already feel sure things are sterile is boiling, baking, then letting dry out and leaving for a month.
