Since the ends closest to the leaves of celery aren't dirty, when needing chopped celery, just slice through the whole bunch, instead of pulling off one stalk at a time. You will be well aware when you need to start pulling the stalks off and washing them. A real Time Saver.
I do almost the same thing except I put the chopped or sliced celery in my colander and wash by running water and swishing it with my hand. Then I just shake the colander and add the celery to whatever recipe calls for it. The little bit of water that is left doesn't hurt a bit.
