After sanding primer can I rinse off with water?

I just finished sanding my primer smooth and wasn't sure if rinsing all the dust off with water would be ok to do. Should I use a wax and grease remover instead or just wipe down with some alcohol?

sure you can. wash with soap and water and dry off. Good to get rid of all the sanding dust or sludge if you wetsanded that are in the body gaps ect. Just make sure you let it dry long enough and blow out openings before paint, so you don't have water come out in the middle of laying on paint. Thats the way it is normally done before painting if there is the time, after everything is washed before paint, then wiped with two lint free clothes, one to wipe on, one to wipe off following it, with a prepaint cleaner just before painting, then lightly tacked off with a tack rag. A mild dishwashing soap you should be safe for soap, at least I've never had problems using it.

Yeah your good as long as you don't have good old New Troy water, lol.. it's givin me probs when i didn't change my water cleaner thing, but the water is like brown here if you don't keep up on the cleaner.. it's kinda nasty, I knew it was bad when i didn't keep on the water softener too, it made my skin red and itchy, i refilled the salt and no more probs.. lol... but yeah, unless you have nasty water like me it's all good,, I wetsand everything here then wash afterwards.

It REALLY depends on a few things, first, what kind of primer? If you have lacquer or some other 1K primer you should never put water on it. Second, even if it is a 2K like urethane or epoxy,if it is sanded thin, it may allow the water to get thru.

I would be very reluctant to using water on primer,only because it may absorb some and give you trouble down the road,wetsanding paint is ok because it is not porous,you might get away with it,but your taking a chance.

The reason I asked was because I was afraid of the primer soaking up the water like was mentioned but I had already rinsed it off after the first post was made. It turned out fine though. What kind of solvent would everyone suggest to use.

I'm using a flexible urethane primer by the way.

If the primer is proper film thickness and is cured, there is no problem. Now, if you are using flexible primer, I assume you are spraying a non-metallic part so all of this is a moot point. Well, almost, but realistically if it is a non-metallic part you have zero to worry about any way you look at it.
