Cleaning Peppermint

Hello all,
I let my peppermint get out of control, and harvested a large amount just recently. I'm attempting to wash and then dehydrate it, and have run into a problem.

These eggs are on the underside of several leaves. I've seen them before and assumed they were spider mite eggs, and simply picked them off before washing.
The thing is, this time I have A LOT of peppermint to clean, and removing the eggs from each individual leaf would be nightmarish. Water alone can't dislodge them, and the vinegar solution I occasionally use to clean tougher herbs didn't do the trick either.
Any suggestions?
