Greetings one and all,

I purchased one dip for the first time. I have been using naptha with mixed results so I thought I would give one dip a try. Wow this stuff is expensive...especially to ship!

Anyway, my question is: do you folks just pour enough out to clean the hairspring and then dispose of it or save it to use again?

Thanks,

Pat

We reuse it. One way is to pour it into a tall slim stainless steel cup and float it in the ultrasonic for a few minutes.
Then pour it back into the can leaving any junk in the bottom for disposal.

Make sure you keep the lid tight. Or next time you go to use it the jar will be empty!
