Mushrooms next: Agaricus bisporus, the common mushrooms known at various points of their growth as white or button mushrooms, or champignons. These become creminis or baby bellas as they grow.

You can get most of the dirt off them with your fingers, brushing their caps and stems softly. If water is necessary, make it ice-cold and use it sparingly, then dry the mushrooms quickly and gently with a paper towel.
