boiling hot water will kill anything it touches but thats about as far as I'd go. any kind of chemicals would be difficult to rinse all the way off before trying to restart the tank.

I would put a piece of mesh over your drain in your bath tub, pour the gravel on the far side of the tub then pour boiling water over it a few times. You could also do this with your filter and decorations then I think it would be safe to set it back up again and start over. Just learn from your past mistakes and hopefully this time it will go more smoothly for you.

Or you could buy a really cheap spaghetti strainer pour your gravel in that and rinse it out under the faucet.

That would work to I just remembered this is only a 10 gallon tank. I did the bath tub for my 55 gallon that came with used gravel. It was a lot of gravel and would of took forever to do in a strainer. ; )
