just continue to knead it into itself until its clean...if its still dirty after kneading, or there is any grit caught in it youre going to need a new one.
also, discard it if its dropped.
the new clay alternatives like speedy prep towel and the optimum block are gaining some real following for an alternative to clay. they last longer,and just rinse out. 50+ cars per towel/pad is what is being reported.
