Default Reusing sanitiser

If I fill a load of bottles with cleaner/steriliser and let then sit overnight can I reuse the liquid the next day to clean/sterilise my fermentation bin? I use VWP at the moment. Thanks!

I'm not familiar with VWP but I reuse StarSan.

Something is always fermenting....

A chlorine-based sanitizer like VWP should retain it's effectiveness for a couple days under optimal conditions. Make sure you are are thoroughly cleaning soiled items and rinsing well after sanitizing. I haven't seen VWP locally but have used bleach before moving to a no-rinse sanitzer (Starsan).
