Any advice on how to get mushrooms REALLY clean? We're living in a -----stan country, and food-born illnesses, including typhoid, are all too common. I've always been a tiny bit cavalier in other parts of the world and just gave local fruits and vegetables a good swish in distilled water. Here -- a bit of bleach in a cool water bath is the only reliable deterrent since some of the yucky bugs aren't killed by cooking. It works for most produce, but mushrooms....not so sure about them not absorbing the bleach aroma, if not the bleach itself.
