A five-minute boil won't accomplish much. You'll want to do something for an extended period of time, likely outdoors, if possible.
I'll boil it for half a day in the outdoors to make sure it sinks and rid of nasties. When the wood comes, does the customs leave a note saying they treated it? Thanks.
