There is a great video on this in the library. Basically during your weekly 50% water change, you hover the siphon over the surface of the sand with one hand while running your fingers through the sand with your other hand. If you siphon into a bucket (even if it's sitting in the sink and the water is overflowing the bucket), it will catch any sand sucked up by the siphon and you can dump it back into the tank.
