    Yo, spike...think of yourself as the customer...would you want a bag of mushrooms with bugs crawling through it littered with fauna debris??
    Finding them is half the work, preparing them for storage in the fridge is the other half...

    If you are selling them, shake the dirt and bugs off and store in a paper bag in the fridge till sold
    do not rinse them as they may get Moldy...

    I cleaned then off already though over 100
    I heard someone say your supposed to clean then out and keep them in the fridge with damp paper towels And replace the paper towels every other day?
    And there was allot of ants in one of the big ones that if i didn't clean would have been in the fridge lol when i cut the end off to wash it out there must have been 25 lil ants that came flooding out lol
