    Don't get lazy. Just wash it well.
  2. Might I ask why? Unless theres grease or meat involved, soap isn't necessary each and every time, or even most of the time. While it might just be anecdotal, I've hardly ever used soap to wash my food dishes when I'm in the backcountry for a week or more at a time. Dirt, sand, pebbles, all work fine, then just rinse.

    Spit----->Air Dry
  4. After washing my glass, either in the dish washer or by hand, i rinse it thouroly with copious amounts of hot water then dry it with a clean towel. A lot of times im too lazy to clean and dry my glass between beers and usually find myself just rinsing the glass out with tap water. If im trying a new beer, especially one that has been hyped, I'll take extra care in cleaning the glass.

    I drink most of my beers outside(pool patio etc) so I use good quality clear disposable plastic cups.
    Flame away!

    Stop worrying about how your dish washing habits are effecting head retention and worry about getting an effing life.

  7. Life or not, I get it. I stumbled on this thread via google search because I too was losing my head so to speak. And good beer deserves a good head because the foam is delicious and soft like a cloud, and theres nothing better than that first si[. You don't have to like it, by any means, but let us who will enjoy our heads!

    Paper towels FTW!!

    Seriously though, my house has terribly hard water, air drying makes them look disgusting. I use very hot water with a small amount of dish soap and paper towel them dry. Never had any problems that way and it takes about ten seconds.
