Depends on the volume. A gallon or 3 would be pretty easy on the stovetop. Wouldn't take that long. Plus the cost of the electricity to do so would be less than a penny. Even a gas stove would be pennies on the dollar compared to making another batch.

I never built a keg washer. I just used it warm out of the system into a keg, made a bunch of black-black & grey-grey jumpers, & daisy chained a bunch of kegs. Less of a waste of CO2 when you're pushing PBW, rinse water & sanitizer all at the same time. Not that that's cheaper or easier than a keg washer, it's just what I had at the time.
