Transcript:Quick Tips: Clean Mushrooms Without Water

Hi, I'm Kaytie Sproul, here for About.com, and here are some quick tips for cleaning mushrooms.

Best Practices for How to Clean Mushrooms Without Water

The best way to clean mushrooms is with a dry bristle brush. Simply take each mushroom and wipe off any dirt or debris that remains on the cap and/or stem.

Additional Ways to Clean Mushrooms Without Water

If you don't have a bristle brush, you can also wipe each mushroom down with a dry paper towel. Because mushrooms are porous, you want to avoid cleaning them with water, as they will soak up any liquid like a sponge and lose a great deal of their natural flavor. And that's how you clean mushrooms!
