no I don't wash or rinse my cabbage, but I do discard the outer leaves. If you understand the growing habit of the cabbage, the leaves form from the central core and only grow larger, you will see that it would be difficult for anything to get inside the cabbage. The sprays will congregate at the base of the inner plant, that would be the only area that needs attention, but I cut off that part of the base.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead
