    Hi, I have been using the Bubble Jet Set 2000 to make my labels using cotton muslin. I have been throwing out any of the solution that is left over. Because it is rather expensive I am wondering if anyone knows if it can be reused. Thanks and Happy New Year everyone.

    My understanding is that you can pour the unused portion back into the container for re-use.

    Personally? I just lay the labels on a large piece of plastic wrap or a garbage bag and wet it down really good. Fold the sides up over it, so it stays nice and wet. It can only absorb just so much solution, so why waste it? I use a LOT less of it that way :D:D:D

    I use a homemade solution that seems to woork just as well and you can save it,so I don't see why you could'nt reuse the bubblejet.

    Here is the link it worked fine for me.For those in the US just look up grams to ounce conversion, Most shot glasses are an ounce and that is what I used to measure the ingredients.

    you definitely can pour the unused Jet Set 2000 back into the bottle to use again.

    There's a different technology. This link explains it.
