I believe (but I could be mistaken) that in Europe, England especially, most people do not rinse. different strokes for different folks.

Myself, I do like Texasgirl.

That's true Gb. We used to have a family from England living in a house behind us.
One day they offered me a glass of soda but I kindly refused it once I saw all of the soap floating ontop.

I've known folks here in the states not to rinse, and I'd rather not eat off their dishes!

How does one 'kindly refuse'?

Anyway, it's true; my mum wont rinse and when I was this student, I lived with this girl who also didn't rinse.

Regarding the dishwashers however; they're largely excessive and environmentally-damaging.

Why would you even ask? I can't believe that someone would towel dry soapy dishes, not even in my wildest dreams.

What sheltered lives some people lead! Anyway, I never said anything about towel drying...

Simple... by saying "Oh I'm sorry I'm not very thirsty right now but thank you anyway"

I very rarely fill a sink with water. If I'm hand washing I wash each piece separately AND rinse and if it's goes into the dishwasher I just get the big pieces of food off - my dishwasher takes care of the rest and I don't see a need to wash them twice.

I wouldn't exactly call it "leading a sheltered life" - different customs for different folks - it's just normally (I said normally which implies not always) people rinse their dishes after they are washed. A lot of people also towel dry their dishes so that was not an unusual statement to make.
