I'm not talking about putting it through a wringer washer and a spin cycle. Just a quick dip and rinse.
Hahaha....I know and agree. I once had a massive rainstorm knock over 30-40 of our 6-8 foot tall plants. When we showed up at the garden these plants were drooped over, with many colas, upper side branches, and tops in the mud.
The soft ground allowed the blasting winds overnight to tip them almost completely over. It was just at harvest time anyway so chop, chop, dip, dip in the creek, and hang to dry. It was still Skunk#1 at its finest....well at least as far as anyone who had never had it before could tell....haha.....
