YES. This is acceptable when done correctly. The key is to make sure that they are whole, and only wash right before cooking. Never let them sit wet for more than 10 minutes. If they don’t soak or sit, then they won’t get slimy. Quickly rinse, slice and cook and you’ll be good to go.

Cooking is all about speed and efficiency.  Individually wiping each mushroom is not worth the extra time or effort.  Especially, for little to no noticeable difference.  This is most true when working with common supermarket types at home.
