Who in the hell uses ice cold water to rinse dishes?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My new roommate was helping me with the dishes and she was rinsing them with ice cold water! She said that's what she's always done and everyone she knows does it like that. Am I the only one who thinks this is crazy??

Shouldn't be if you washed with soap....

Quoting SAnders224:

I use hot,.they dry faster. Plus I thought hot killed amy lingering germs.

I was always told that cold water helps to break down soap (hence the reason washing machines only rinse in cold water). I have a dishwasher now, so I don't have to worry. There is science behind rinsing in cold water, though. It is the way it is supposed to be done.
