I sanitize my bottle by soaking them in Diversol (pink powder stuff). What I have read people are very adimant to tripple rinse everything! Is this stuff dangerous - in otherwords if trace ammounts are left in the bottle will it make ya sick?

Would it be ok to give it a good single rinse in hotwater? Or how about even a double rinse?

It is bleach based, that is why you need to rinse. Basically rinse until you can't smell it anymore and you're fine. You might want to consider getting yourself some starsan or iodophor, they really do make life much easier.
