What's the best way to clean mussels?

We are now in a month ending in the letter "r" so you know what that means - shellfish! Mussels are one easy, relatively inexpensive way to enjoy shellfish on any given night. What is your preferred method of cleaning out the sand? I've heard giving them a soak with flour (sometimes also with coarse salt) works best, but I'm not sure I see an appreciable difference. Do you have any good tips to share?
