After washing dishes, do you rinse?

Not only do you leave the trace of chemicals on dishes that you remove from the water but also traces of dissolved food matter (perhaps more of an issue towards the end of the dish-washing session). It's not very gentlemanly nor lady-like!

Yes, I rinse. I also do not fill sink with water, I wash with soap and sponge and rinse each piece, one at a time.

Of course. Why would you not rinse? you'd just be wiping germs and soap around. Actually I rinse, then put in dishwasher, where it washes twice, then rinses in hotter water than my own hands can stand. i don't think I could ask for more.

Yes! Not plunge into water, hot water over each piece independently.

I wash dishes just like Tg does. One dish at a time. Then they go into the dishwasher for a second washing

The few things I wash by hand get a final rinse in the hottest water out of the faucet. Everything else gets a good rinse and into the dishwasher where they get thoroughly washed and rinsed.
