How do you wash the dishes?

Most of our dishes during the day go into the dishwasher, especially with three young kids. Some dishes though I do hand wash, like the pots and pans, cause usually they need a little more scrubbing.

When hand washing in the sink I tend to sort, probably don’t have too.  I always leave the frying pan full of scrambled eggs and pots that had fettuccini alfredo cooked in them to the last.  There are some good suds going in the sink but I still think of cross contamination of foods.  I don’t want to wash say the frying pan first and get all that egg residue from the pan in the washing water. Do you sort or just throw in all the dishes into the sink and wash in no particular order?
