We eat potatoes, skins and all. Before eating all we do is wash them in clear water with a brush. Is that enough to remove any anti-sprouting agent that may remain on the potato?
I always wash my fruits and vegetables to remove any dirt or sand. Washing and brushing the potatoes is recommended. The sprouting agent dissipates very quickly once applied, so your method of washing in water and cleaning with a brush will work fine. Here are some articles on it from the Dr. Potato blog:

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
