You appear to be using four treatments, maybe three. Clorox, physical removal of visible portion of the rot, ultraviolet radiation (sun/light), and some drying.
Sometime when you are fortunate (gh) and have enough rot in enough rhizomes of the same iris, at the same aproximate stage in each, treat each with only one of the treatments you are using and treat one the same way you are treating now. I have no idea what the results in New Mexico climate will be but am genuinely curious if you decide to.
