suck some alcohol into the syringe.
boil some water in a clean pan.
after the water is boiling shoot the alcohol out into the sink.
and then suck some boiling water into the syringe.
shoot it out.
repeat this several times with the boiling water.
last time leave the water in the syringe.

If you are extra paranoid :
You could pressure cook the syringe wrapped in alum foil.

good luck!

Use a Q-tip with alcohol on it and wipe the spores out.

Or suck some alcohol in and let the syringe sit for a few hours...then when you quirt the alcohol out twist the plunger to try and loosen the spores with the head of the plunger.

Then follow the above procedure...in my other post.

good luck!
