IS there anything you can't boil?

I have a bit of a stink issue still after getting rid of the vinegar in my rinse, so I think I have a bit of a build up. I'm thinking of boiling the dipes or putting them in the dishwasher , since I don't have a washer at home.
I know I can boil the pfs and inserts...can I not do that to the covers and pockets.
Also, how long should I boil everything?
And am I supposed to wash them with detergent prior to boiling or trust that they'll get clean enough without it?

Just watch out boiling snaps, they can melt. Boil them after running through a normal wash, I boil for about 5 min. and it takes the stink away, but it does come back pretty quickly.

You're not supposed to boil snaps. I've never tried it, but that's what "they" say.
