How do you clean (or desoap) your loofah?

I was thinking about this after responding to another discussion. When I clean or desoap my loofah I just run the shower water under it while I also squeeze the loofah and wring it out, trying to get all of or as much of the soap as I possibly can out of the loofah. I was wondering if anyone else used other effective methods, or if perhaps some of you don't bother wringing out the loofah. As for wash cloths, do you rinse and then wring them out, or do you rinse them and lay them flat so that they'll dry? When you've got a real wet towel (several uses) do you leave it somewhere to dry or do you finally take it to be washed?
