I just bought this string of hearts plant today, and followed some advice to use diluted hydrogen peroxide in the soil. I tried and a bunch of tiny small insects started running around. They are fast crawlers and can jump. Could someone help me identify them so I know how to get rid of them?

Edit: After some googling, I found that they are springtails. If anyone has experience with getting rid of them, let me know! The soil is pretty soaked right now unfortunately... but I will leave it outside to help it go faster. It's pretty hot out!
