To clean mushrooms well, and actually get the dirt off of them, you will want to shower them or spray them with water. You will want to be careful not to soak them in water.

Then, remove the mushrooms from the colander and then pat them dry.

When the mushrooms are done baking, and if there are any leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge. They will last for about 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
Then the best way to reheat stuffed mushrooms is by placing them on a cookie sheet and baking them at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until they are heated all the way through.
