I have never peeled, but have been a washer at times.
Understandable. Are those white ones or crimini?
Diana Grant says
I used some Criminis in the soup I made for lunch today, and as various chefs recommend only brushed them off and sliced them. These answers have really been interesting and varied.
Brushing will work just as good as peeling. I used to only brush them off my my mother in law recently showed me the peeling the outer skin method.. of course she gets rid of the stem too, but I think that's a waste.

Our local "wild" mushroom seller was one who insisted that they should only be lightly brushed, so I went to a kitchen store, and was surprised to find a variety of specific mushroom brushes, had to buy one of course.
I am surprised at all the differnet opinions on this, but it is interesting.

That is good to know. Apparently there is a wide range of opinions on mushroom washing as well as rice rinsing.
Steack and mushrooms are a great combo! With the rice, I notice how the water is quite cloudy when you rinse.
