Any ref's for that? Rinsing with water, with or without subsequet drying, is unlikely to effectively remove bacteria. If microbes were present, they're unlikely associated with the surface by a water soluble mechanism and tap water itself usually includes significant bacterial populations - esp. pseudomads. Drying of islated cells of pseudomnads does substnatially redcue viability but those found in water are usualy assoioated with bioflim that protects against the effect of drying.
absolutely anything (including water)_ kills 99% of bacteria.
