I admit I have not been following this thread closely, but what I know is
what I'll say:
Officially, according to the BSHB (page 282) the cold-sanitizing rinse is
second with hot-clear rinse last. This is also the way I recall cleaning
mess kits in the field while I was in the Army (something not done much
anymore due to disposable plates etc).
As I remember, the hot rinse was last as it allowed the water to evaporate
quickly, drying the item faster. This helped to prevent dirt and whatever
from accumulating on the item.
After 30+ years in Scouting and 20+ years in the Army, that is the way I
have always been taught and practiced!
