Cooking-related question

How the heck do you rinse red lentils? I’ve got a ton of teeny-tiny, split and shelled red lentils. But I don’t own a strainer, just a colander, and they fall through the holes. So how they heck do I rinse them before cooking? I tried using just a bowl and my hand, but some of them slid through my fingers. I even stooped so low as to use a coffee filter, and boy was THAT a mistake.

So… help, please? How do you rinse them, or do they even need to be rinsed at all?
