[nafex] Sterilizing scions

On one of my web surfing episodes I came across a bit of info from 
WSU about sterilizing the exterior of scions: 
10% chlorine
10 minutes running water, (or agitated/stirred water)
drop of Tween (drop of detergent will do)

This is the method Prosser uses to sterilize the material they 
receive from across covers so I thought this would be appropriate 
during this discussion of importing scionwood. 
BTW, too much chlorine or too long in the mix could damage tissue. 
Too little and too short a time may not kill the stuff. The detergent 
and the stirring is extremely important, without these the surface of 
many parts of the scion could escape exposure entirely.
