Does hot water help detergent rinse out better? I love the Target pristine biodegradeable detergent, but I'm having to do lots of rinses (way less than Tide, but still too much) and I feel like it's such a waste.

Yes, hot or warm water will help detergent rinse out better than cold. I only have to do one short warm wash/cold rinse with tide F&G. Do you think you are using to much detergent? Vinegar also helps break down detergent and I always had about half to a full cup to the rinse wash. Though I've read vinegar can not be good for some with hard water.

Maybe. I've been using the detergent for a few weeks and its working well, I just haven't figured out how little I can use but still get the dipes clean. I've been using up to line 2, but I just did a load with up to line 1 and a little splash of bleach. I really need to just change up one thing at a time and figure it out that way.

I agree with the just change one thing at a time. Good luck
