A bit of each. If I'm washing up by myself I stop halfway through, dry what's in the dish drainer then start washing again. I always dry the glasses and cuttlery because they look streaky if you don't, but I might leave the rest.
I NEVER hand wash... not dishes, not clothes. But even though I use the dishwasher, I still let them air dry. I run the Eco mode on the dishwasher and then open the door and let mother nature do the rest. Plus I get a nice steam facial every time I open the dishwasher door. :)
Ideally, I like the kitchen to be clean and tidy at the end of the day so I will normally dry them and put them away. However, if I'm really tired or busy with other stuff I'll leave them to air dry. I try not to be too fanatical...
Depends on the amount of dishes need to be done. I'll only dry if I need additional space in the dry rack to fit the rest of the dishes that still need washing. Once I am done washing, everything in the dry is left to dry on its own.
Leave them to dry mostly although that happens these days in the dishwasher. the only time I was and dry is if I'm preparing the kitchen for guests given the dining area is in full sight of the kitchen. My children grew up in a different culture so they remind me that if I am leaving them to dry I need to wash and rinse everything before leaving it to dry.
Joan, it is a lot healthier, to let the hand washing up dry naturally & to NOT use a tea-towel. My in-laws have always insisted on drying up with a tea towel. My eldest daughter uses a dishwasher, my youngest daughter & her partner also wash up by hand, & lets them dry naturally. Way to go, Girl!
