For the  bottles, nipples and most accessories for the pump boil them. the tubing you might have to buy new.

But I do know that your milk doesnt touch the tubing so it should be ok. just wash in war soapy water if you are worried about it.

Try googling the brand of your pump, you may be able to download instructions for your particular model. As for binkies and nipples, unless you kiddos are less than a year apart I would ditch them and buy new. They deteriorate over time. For the bottles the dishwasher on the hottest setting should do it, or boil them for I think it's 5, 10, or 15 min. Can't remember someone else probably knows though.
