Boiling a barrell

I've just noticed that I've run out of barrells and i can't get any until monday. I need to inject today, would it be ok to boil the last one I used on thursday to get rid of any bacteria etc?
Many thanks

    Absolutely not.

    You don't need to inject today. It will do you no ill effect to wait until you get some new ones.

    As PB said... a few extra days past your jab day is not gonna make any major difference to your blood levels even on short esters.... and will be a lot safer too!!!!

    I commend you on wanting to keep a disciplined schedule... however there are times when we have to pull back and rebalance the equation.

    there are certain pathogenic endospores that can survive boiling temps... which do not mistake is generally suitable for "ingestion"  but not "injection"  that is why surgical utensils are autoclaved. 

    If you want a quick read on what essentially you are up against during disinfetion... take a look at the link in the LOCATION section as well as the last two paragraphs under FORMATION and DESTRUCTION. There are some nasty things out there there will wreak havoc on your body, potentially scar you for life, and even possibly  kill you, so don't tread this area lightly. the gamble isn't worth the gain... the risk is just to great for something that really is just too easy to not do it the RIGHT way!!

    also to further clarify... think of an endospore to bacterium as what a seed is to a plant.

    the extreme climatic stresses that normally kill off many plants for the winter... the seed is designed to endure.

    I also cut the main excerpt that will hopefully steer you toward taking the above advice of PB an Lee, which is wait and get some pre-sterilized pokers!!
    ~Formation and Destruction~
    "Endospores are resistant to most agents which would normally kill the vegetative cells they formed from. Household cleaning products generally have no effect, nor do most alcohols, quaternary ammonium compounds or detergents. Alkylating agents however, such as ethylene oxide, are effective against endospores.
    While resistant to extreme heat and radiation, endospores can be destroyed by burning or autoclaving. Exposure to extreme heat for a long enough period will generally have some effect, though many endospores can survive hours of boiling or cooking. Prolonged exposure to high energy radiation, such as x-rays and gamma rays, will also kill most endospores."
