Bill, even better than the Scotch Brite pads are a pair of (probably women's) facial defoliating/cosmetic gloves. Just hose off the worst in the garden, then put them in the sink with a trickle of running water, and scrub with both hands then rinse. Goes quickly and fairly gently as the gloves are not as rough as the pads. The skins seem to remain almost intact. I then cut off the tops to discourage growing, pack them in clean bags and refrigerate. Still have about 5 pounds left that were harvested last September and they are in very good condition.
