Default Bottling multiple batches

I used the search feature, but couldn't find an answer.

I have 4 batches that need bottling (all one gallon) and they are wildly different flavors. Do I need to wash, rinse, and sanitize my bottling bucket between each batch? Or do you think rinsing it out with RO water will be good enough?

I'd definitely do the sanitization step. If one of them is carrying an infection that hasn't come through yet it might transfer it to the other beers without sanitization.
