I am no expert, but I think microwave only heats things that have moisture, and that might scorch the fabric. See what happens with some dispensable fabric, and watch, in case it begins to smoke.

Googling for dry heat sterilization turns up some possibilities:
2% hydrogen peroxide (would that bleach?),
dry heat (oven, but maybe at temperatures that would be detrimental),
UV light.

The last suggests that just a good airing in sunlight (both sides) would kill most germs.

I posted this mostly to warn about microwave.

Good luck,

Larry

I remember reading an article by a professional rug restorer, who said that he had contracted skin infections from old rugs, which I find quite believable, since rugs are underfoot for a generation and can pick up all kinds of things. Ethnic textiles less likely to be a problem, I think.

Soap kills most things, I don't think anything stronger is needed for cleaning. I used to work for a detergent company at one time, did some microbiological testing on laundry detergents, and found soap to be surprisingly good in this respect.

Peroxide will definitely kill everything ... including some of the colors!
