You will need to wash and clean the cilantro. Place the cilantro on a paper towel to remove the excess water. Make sure the cilantro is dry before adding the olive oil to preserve your cilantro.

You should wash all herbs before you put them in olive oil.

it is always a good idea to wash herbs/plants/produce before you consume them due to pesticide residues, or other random pollutants from the area where it is grown. I can't think of one plant that would suffer from being first washed

Yes. It has to be washed and completely dry. I have best luck with mine when stored in the refrigerator.

Be cautious about preserving herbs and vegetables in oil. There is a risk of botulism, which can be deadly. Commercial kitchens use a different process which prevents botulism and other foodborne toxins.

"The safest recommendation is to freeze vegetables or herbs stored in oil. If the product is not frozen, it should be refrigerated and then either consumed within four days or discarded."
