Default Never use water to clean on your steel bearings

Seriously unless your bearings are made of plastic never use water on them. Tempered stainless steel will corrode faster then you could ever dry them. I suggest you head down to your local bike shop and pick up an organic de-greaser. Something like Finishline Citrus works good to remove oil and dirt.

Now if you have ceramic bearings only use what the manufacturer recommends. If they recommend water and soap than have at it.
