How to clean a granite mortar and pestle?

I heard that one shouldn't wash a granite mortar and pestle with soap, because the soap water will permeate into the rock and contaminate whatever you grind next. How do I clean the mortar and pestle then? If I'm making pesto in it, there has to be some way to get the oily residue off.
