Basil - to wash or not to wash? Best practices?

I know that washing basil weakens it's flavor significantly. I often buy it from local supermarkets where everyone can touch it, that's why I just have to wash it. But even when I buy organic basil, I still feel the urge to wash it. How do you deal with that? Is there any way to 'wash' the basil without weaken it's flavour?
