Tricks and tips to clean out romaine, etc.?

I am always a little nervous about cleaning the romaine leaves and other such lettuce, as well as spinach. I keep washing and washing. Sometimes I just settle for buying the supermarket salad bar cut-up lettuce and spinach, although it costs a fortune, just b/c I assume they have high-power washers - or anyway, the lettuce and spinach look clean.

Are there any tricks and tips to making sure the lettuce and spinach are clean?
