You have the right instincts.You have the right instincts. Homegrown garlic will still be on the dirty side compared to store-bought. After harvesting, you want to "cure" the garlic by letting it dry in a protected place out of the sun that's warm but not hot nor moist. When the outer skin gets papery, brush off as much dirt as you can and cut the roots. We do not wash it prior to storage. Further cleanup or washing the garlic may shorten its lifespan. If the dirt is bothersome to you, remove the outer layer of wrapper. We hope this advice helps.
