Moldy scions

Due to USPS long delays, my scions arrived with a bit of mold.

What is recommended to clean them before grafting? I was thinking dipping them in a 1:10 bleach solution for 30 seconds (1 part bleach and 10 parts water).


Mix 1 teaspoon Citric Acid into 1 gallon of water.
Put scions in a clean ziplock & rinse with Citric Acid.
Empty & rinse again & again until you used up the solution.
Shack remaining solution off scions.
Put in new new ziplock & seal.
Keep in refrigerator.
Citric Acid won’t hurt them.
