Do not reuse

Do not reuse the Krowtan as the chemicals in the original strength are used up or absorbed in the tanning process of the leather.

Start all over each time if you want the best possible results from the Krowtan process.

sure you can but its got its limits

you can reuse it as long as you add some more krowtann and salt.
I only use krowtann 2000 and I've experimented alot with it. when I'm goin to reuse it for wt capes I add 1\2 cup more krowtann and 3 cups more salt, havent had ant problems at all! if im going to use it for smaller stuff like fishers, squirrels and such I just put them in without adding any more.just dont reuse it more than a couple times though!water gets pretty nasty looking.

goes with above
