you dont have to worry about sterilizing the perlite itself,
but more attention to the water used with the perlite that you should worry about (ie; stagnent water,etc.)
like dude said..give it a few glug glugs of h202 in the terrarium floor...
but if you insist on sterilizing the perlite itself, all of the methods you listed would work fine.

I would sterilize the perlite if you are reusing it. You can put it in an autoclave bag and PC it at 15psi for an hour. The biggest fear with reusing any material is Trichoderma. With steam pasteurization at 160F for an hour kills the spores. Also, if you raise the pH it will inhibit Trich from growing, so you can add some baking soda or salt.

i usually do the good old 20% clorox 80% water soak for about 30 mins.. then really rinse till all that shit is cleaned away.. Apply back to your terrarium and then hit the perlite with 20%h202 80%h20 for desiered rh level..

sterlizing perlite is not needed....keep some h2o2 in the water and thats all you need...I usually just splash a lil in the water I'm adding....since it dosen't have too be a dead on measurement
