Lentils and sausages!

I've brought a packet of lentils back from Italy and they have a recipe on the back. I've got most of the translation done (and cooked my dinner!) but there's one bit I'm not sure about.

"La lenticchia non va tenuta a bagno. Si consiglia una scelta a dito e un accurato lavaggio prima della cottura"

I think Scelta is quality and dito a finger, so I think this is asking me to manually check the lentils [for stones] since they've not been washed. Then give the lentils a careful wash.

Google translate thinks otherwise, that
lentils should not be kept in the bathroom. It is advisable to choose a finger and a thorough cleaning before cooking.


Which is less than helpful...

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Alex
