    oh my! Your lucky you didn't burn the house down. (that's why I'm afraid to bake driftwood or substrate for that matter).

    Umm..you could try sanding (sand paper/sander) it down (removing all the burnt stuff)..then I'd do the plain bleach-rinse-soak in prime treated water-then airdry and sniff test.

    I will post pictures when I go to the library. The internet here takes to long to upload pictures.

    Baking it is a waste IMO, especially if you purchased it from a pet store. Soaking it is all it needs.

    You could have it sand blasted to remove the chared bits. It will leave the wood pretty smooth. Only problem unless you or you have a buddy who can do it, it would be cheaper to just buy another piece of wood.

    I am not buying new wood, I paid way to much for it to begin with.
