Can I boil my sand to sterilize it?

I know you can do rocks and gravel but can you boil sand as well? I had some deaths and I do not know what was the cause so I need to sterilize the sand... If not is there any other way or should I trash it...

you're actually not supposed to boil rocks or gravel, they can explode. think boiling sand would be okay but don't know much about it

You could watch it in a solution of bleach - 1 part bleach to 9 parts water - then rinse it really well a gazillion times. If you can afford to, though, it would be safer to get rid of it and start again.
