Haven't done this kind of thing in years, but I once cleaned a culture by
diluting heavily and streaking onto salt-water agar, about 1.25%.  Then
picking colonies and transferring back to liquid medium.  The real trick
lies in the agar density.  Too low and the cells will be able to travel
across the surface; too high and there is a risk of dessication.
