Distillation effect on purity

How necessary distillation is when the product synthesized will be used immediately for second step? I prepared an oxirane recently and noticed that evaporating acetone is easy, but distilling the oxirane itself is PITA. So I thought I just rinse it with brine a few times as per the synthesis prior to distillation, dry it and use it as is. How detrimental this should be?

It's impossible to tell without knowing what you are using it for.
