<p>I line dry my BGs and they don't take too long, so that's one step you could skip.  I definitely wouldn't skip the pre-rinse, though I suppose you could try doing the pre-rinse in a bucket in your bathroom, though in that case they wouldn't have the rinse water spun out of them...  I don't put any detergent in the pre-rinse.</p>

<p>I do a prerinse, then a hot extra wash so I figure it gets an extra wash as a rinse anyways. (an extra long wash cycle for me has basically a wash then a wash then a rinse).</p>
<p>it probably depends on the machine though. </p>
<p>and I try to keep it no more than 2/3 full.</p>

<p>I don't know if you could get away with less, but maybe try for a bit and worst case you'll have to strip.</p>

<p>I do a pre-rinse and then a hot wash, but no separate rinse after that. Then either into the dryer or onto the clothesline, depending on the time of year/weather.  That's worked fine for us for the last 3 years.</p>
