How to Clean Sand??

Posted By: TamS

I have just set up a 10g tank and have put sand as the substrate. I have no idea how to clean it with water changes, nor how to add water without stirring it up and making a cloudy mess. I tried to put a saucer in there, but it still got cloudy. It's Currently undergoing a fishless cycle. I have read several posts about sand but none about how to clean it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
