i wonder if those who do not actually rinse use the two sink method much like many pubs do with glasses?

that is, the dirty glasses (or dishes) are scrubbed in soapy water in one sink, then are dipped into a second sink of clean (or rather un-soapy) water before being dried.

like luvs mentioned, ingesting soap is like taking laxatives, so i can't imagine not rinsing or at least dipping in clean water.

even with the second sink method though, you have to figure that the cleanliness of the un-soapy water would be increasingly adulterated as each dish is introduced, depending on the volume of both water and dishes.

I am pretty fanatical about rinsing, but I almost never towel dry anything except my knives. My cast iron and my wok get dried on high heat on the stove, everything else just goes on the rack.

Oh yeah, things like the stick blender get towel dried too.

Unless I need it again immediately, I rinse and put it in the dishwasher. Things "look" so much cleaner after it finishes with them. I therefore assssume they are cleaner.

One sink or two, After a few dishes it isn't the best scenario. Also, I do not "stuff" the dishwasher. I find it works better that way.

While we are on it? I use bleach cleaner on food prep surfaces. Especially after making bread. After all, what is yeast?
