Default Store/reuse PBW?

The way you can with Star San? Or is PBW one and done?

I have left a PBW solution in my keg washer for up to 3 months at a time. It got REALLY funky smelling but still cleaned just fine. I dumped it so I wouldn't have to smell it anymore. I'm not cleaning sanke's anymore so it stays a lot cleaner just running it through rinsed out cornies so I think I'm at about 3 months again but it smells fine...

I mix up 1 gallon at a time & store it in 1G SunnyD jugs for when I need a little to clean or soak something. I mix up larger amounts in the FV to soak it clean.

So let me ask you this - when you use some from the jug to clean bottles, or whatever, do you return the used PBW to the jug? Or dump it?
