Thanks Pat! Sounds like good ideas. Yes, the hazy build-up bothers me most. I'll give your suggestions a try!

@FuzzyChef I think it's just semantics - what I call scrubbing, you refer to as a little rubbing. My primary issue is that the colander seems to look hazy after washing - and often there are simple solutions / "secrets" people have for making things much easier. I think it may also be the quality of the pasta as well that contributes. Thanks.

@TFD This man is critically ill& this is just one of many advisements given him by his treating physician(s).He's remained in pain& lacking mobility-due to fear of medicine- contributing to depression. (He recently began takingbaby aspirin) This causes dismay& concern for his spouse& friends. Ive heard other physicians suggest that red wine is actually good for us(most) due to high anti-oxidants-believed to be crucial in cancer prevention.This man's undergone surgery& chemo. I believe his HC team is searching for options to renew his strength& ability to fight against a cancer relapse.

Thanks Kate. That is generally the way I do it now, but after soaking I still have to scrub considerably. Glad that works well for you though! I appreciate the input!

Thank you TFD. A family friend who does not drink alcohol at all and additionally is apprehensive about consuming any substance in even the smallest amount, was advised by his physician to "drink a glass of wine each day". He really has no idea how much is appropriate. So the 750 ml bottle/ 5 -5 oz servings that you mentioned makes good sense to share with him so that he is comfortable with the doctor's orders. Thanks for the detailed reply and helpful information :)
