bleaching my substrate

okay, i'll probably get jumped onto again for posting this in cult, but the contamination-forum is not that frequented and this is really kinda urgent. i know you know how one can get emotional over ones little babies.
***
my jars have bacterial contamination. hippie3 suggested dunking them into a solution 1 bleach/99 water. i'm in switzerland, and all i found was something called "javex". it's a solution with 4.75% Sodiumhypochlorit. is that what people mean with bleach? to what percentage should i dilute?

*cowboy mode on*
YEEEEHAW!
*cowboy mode off*

so, can anybody confirm what i'm about to do:
i'll mix my javex with 100 parts water. i then submerge bacterial-cake in solution for 10 minutes (since some of them are not yet that much colonized and i fear breaking them up, i'll just fill the jar with it). drain. maybe do same with just water to rinse.

sound good? well, i kinda feel like operating on some dude with a swiss army knife, all that bleach seems brute force to me, but hey, if patient is about to die...
...aww, gimme painkillers.

sounds ok, but you might want to dunk a few hours instead of just 10 minutes, seems more effective.
you may also need to repeat the dunk in a day or so if any contams survived.
