Once the newspaper has been made into strips you just soak the strips in a solution of warm water and a couple of squirts of dishwashing detergent for about 10 minutes.
Hint: If you don't want to buy a natural dishwashing detergent check out my article on homemade dish soap, which gives some recipes and also discusses castile soap, which are also an eco-friendly alternative.
After the newspapers have soaked sufficiently, then rinse the newspaper strips in warm water and press the strips with an old towel (or paper towels) to absorb excess water.
