Cleaning live plants?

Hi guys ! So i recently lost both of my beautiful boys in my split ten gallon due to an ich attack i caught too late. One is my avatar and i never got to post a pic of my other one because he was crazy and active! But he was a marbled double tail with blue and pink coloring.. ANYWAYS to the question. How should i go about cleaning the plants that were in their tanks? I cant find to much info on it.. And should i just soak the filter and heater in hot water? Thanks.

Oh and sorry if its in the wrong thread.. I didnt know where to post because this isnt an emergency.

1 part bleach to 19 parts water. soak for 5 min then put in dechlorinated water overnight.use 2x declorinator than usual.some sensitive plants may not make it.you can use same method to steralize equipment.
