Please humor a stupid noob question.

I'm a dyed in the wool Starsan guy.  However, bottle infections worry me (for good reason), so I've been trying to keep things changed up a bit.

I've used iodophor on my glass in the past, but today, I soaked all of my plastic gear in it.  Well, one thing led to another (as it usually does in my house), and my long soak turned into an all day soak.  

You know where this is going.

Yep, all of my gear has a really nice orange hue - save my silicon tubing, which it more of a pretty pink.  

Now, honestly, I'm not worried...  I just wanted a quick sanity check.  Will you guys confirm for me that this isn't an issue?

I know that iodophor is a no rinse sanitizer, but is a rinse in order here (especially since I'll be applying Starsan to be thorough)?  Or just don't worry about it?

Thanks.  I thought I had read that.

Yay pretty pink tubing!

Which was unnecessary... I had already boiled it.

Hah, thanks.  I feel like such a noob.  

But if having tan/orange stuff helps me not get frigging foaming bottles, I'm happy to go full Oompa Loompa mode.
