Cedar Planks…

How do I clean my planks after cooking on them? I’m scared to use soap because I don’t want it to absorb into the wood grain.

Thoughts?
When I plank salmon it’s usually one go then they go into the fire. but that’s just me, also don’t buy those expensive "planking" cedar boards, if you can find a place that sells cedar roofing you can use those and they usually sell for about a buck a piece.

Just make sure the cedar shake shingles you buy don’t have any fire retardant chemicals applied to them.
