Default Yeast washing noob

How clean is clean? Does every spec of hop trub have to be removed? I've rested it and decanted 4 times now...

It absolutely does not need to be that clean. Some don't even bother washing. You could post a pic, but I'm sure it's fine.

It has to be as clean as you want it to be.

I've used un-washed slurry before with no issues.
