Only have liquid peroxide and no bin big enough for the object. Would gelatin powder work to gel it up?

Corn starch works so I don't see why gelatine shouldn't work as well. Common for both is that it requires heating up the peroxide which is potentially dangerous. Take precautions to only heat it up sufficiently to activate the thickener and avoid any bubbling/splashes of the peroxide. Being a strong oxidizer, it is corrosive for metals and if you get it into an eye, you could easily go blind.

The thing is it's almost impossible to find liquid peroxide or even cream peroxide in Norway. They simply do not sell it to regular persons. The cream peroxide I have was ordered from England. It was a hairdresser cream to bleach hair. I believe it's not legal to sell in Norway. Another thing is that even If I had liquid peroxide and a huge box to submerge something like an A500 case we have almost no sun. North of Norway here. The summers are short and the sun not very strong. Unlike you who live in Australia and have plenty of strong sun and probably easy access to liquid Peroxide

And finding other ways to heat up a big box of water and peroxide like that is not easy.
Pure peroxide is a dangerous explosive liquid and is rarely available in mainstream shops and although it can be obtained in speciality shops you usually have to leave a proof of identity and address for police records since it can be used to build powerful explosives.

What you want is definitely not pure peroxide but diluted versions and those are the ones available to regular kittens. You can most certainly find some in pharmacies alongside Isopropyl Alcohol since this is an excellent disinfectant.

I would moreover recommend pharmacy peroxide over the hair-related solutions since these probably include additional undesirable chemicals.
Peroxide, when sold as a disinfectant is only diluted by water and nothing else, making it perfect for retrobriting (if you buy several liters).

This said, as many others have said, sunlight/UVs alone seem to work just fine.
