Hello there! I'm super new to this hobby but have done lots of research on the care of hedgies, but I could not find an answer to this question:

Is it ok to feed a hedgehog CLEAN (like washed and milked so there's no dirt) earthworms as a treat? We have a killer of a compost at home (The equivelant of a pet for my Dad) and he got all excited when I told him hedgehogs were insectivores.

You shouldn't feed wild caught bugs because they have potentially been in contact with pesticides and viruses and other things bad for your hedgehog. If you can raise or find feeder earthworms in a safe environment then I think you can feed them.
