Can my microwave oven kill anthrax?

I have heard that by putting a damp towel into a microwave oven for one minute you will create a sterile dressing for a wound.
I assume that since the microwave kills germs, this might lead to the conclusion that it could kill something like anthrax. So, using this logic, can I microwave my mail to eliminate the threat of anthrax.

I saw on the news recently that the same method used to irradiate meat can be used to kill anthrax. Am I on to something??

This topic has been discussed in at least two different threads in recent days. I’ll close this thread and direct any remaining questions to the earlier threads:
What kills Anthrax?
At-home anti-anthrax mail handing procedure suggestion?
