Cleaning Sand

After I read the post "Sand Question", I decided to change out my gravel for sand as well. I too am concerned about my sand being too fine, as little bits are constantly being stirred up by the airstone. I did buy it at a fish store though, so I assumed when buying it that it would be okay. My question is, how do you clean sand? I do not think that I can use my regular old siphon, as I am sure that it would come up.
