Not sure if I do it the right way or not, but I just washed out my playsand for my 55g yesterday, and it seems to have settled pretty well.
I filled a 5g bucket about 1/3rd of the way with sand, filled it up with water about 2/3 of the way, really stirred the sand around like crazy with my hands,
Did that about 4 or 5 times
Then I started putting the hose on, and really spraying the sand and spinning the hose around to stir it all up, and then poured the water out of the bucket quickly, did that about a dozen or so times and the sand seems to be pretty good.
