When they are good and dry and ready to come in the house for winter storage I rub off the loose skins and cut the stems to short. They may or may not keep, but they did last year into this year. I used some of last year's cloves when I planted my garlic in the Autumn. I only chose the biggest cloves from the outside of the bulb and ensured they were not double ones.
I just hope that we get good enough weather to cure my garlic. I'm using my shed this year as it gets direct sunlight longer than my conservatory, but first we need some sunlight!
