No, they won't melt.

I do believe that you can wrap them in foil and boil them for 30 mins to sterilize.

I have a pc, but I think that the foil in boiling water sounds better, it would seem a pc would kill them, thanks.

It won't. lol, 15PSI is only 40 degrees hotter than boiling water. That isn't going to be the difference between a syringe and a puddle of plastic.

KlingonfromUranus suggests:

"Or if you want to do a quick sterilization, what I do is I put a large glass of tap water in the microwave and set it on high for 15 mins. After it's been boiling for 5 mins, take your syringe and heat the needle glowing red. Open the microwave, and carefully pull out the water and stick your needle tip in the water and SLOWLY draw up the water until the barrel is full. Tap out any bubbles and draw up more water until barrel is COMPLETELY full. Replace the water in the microwave and continue boiling. Take the syringe of HOT water and squirt it out all the way in a sink. Wait a minute for the water in the microwave to boil out any contams that may have floated in and get your needle red hot again. Repeat drawing in the water, squirting it out, and heating the needle two (2) more times for a total of three (3) washes. On the 3rd or 4th draw, you can keep the water inside the syringe since it is sterile and use it for making spore solution. Wait for it to cool.

I have done this many many many times and have NEVER had a contamed syringe. "

so yeah im gonna try that it seems easier

bring a pot full of water to a boil. Suck up the boiling water with syringe, squirt it out elsewhere, repeat this 3 times then you have a sterile water filled syringe.
