What is the best way to clean rocks? The first thing to try is a scrub brush and a bit of dish soap. You can clean them under running water, but I've found that a small bucket is usually the best approach. Avoid cleaning stones in your sink. Once or twice may not hurt, but the dirt and sand that comes off your rocks can build up in the pipes.

How are rocks created? There are three main types of rocks: sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic.
