Seeds from powdery mildew infected plant

I have read that clones from a plant that had mildew is a bad idea as it infects on a cellular level and will infect the clone some time later.

but what about the seeds? if you germinated seeds that came from a previously infected plant, would the new plants get mildew?

I do not think so . Mildew is brought on by moisture. Do not think it does affect the plant on a cellular level. Seeds should be ok.

That's great! So now what about the spores that might have gotten on the seed shell. Any suggestions to prevent it starting up something.
Will wiping with hydrogen peroxide mixed with water be a good idea?

That would get rid of the spores If it had them . I would doubt they would get on the seed as they are in the calyxes qhen growing.
