When using Lutan F (N) or EZ-100, after tanning, you will have drastically depleted the tanning agent, and dragged out some of the Salt. Since there is no way to measure its strength remaining in the solution, or the small amount of salt, I would always mix a fresh solution. I want to be sure the next batch of skins had the benefit of a full strength tannage. If you try to reuse it, the spent solution, you run the risk of using too much salt, if you recharge it full strength again. Tanneries usually always prefer a frsh solution - that way the whole process is consistent and reliable - with the same expected results each time.
