When sterilizing soil, should I treat all ingredients of the mixture or just some of them?

Soil, humus, sand, and manure should be sterilized. Inorganic materials, such as vermiculite, charcoal, limestone, and superphosphate, should not be sterilized. Instead, add them to the mixture after the sterilizing.
