    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.

    Can you tell me what the "alum" in the recipe is? And do you find the washing crystals in the grocery store by the laundry?

    Alum is in the spice isle in with the spices, and the washing soda is in with the laundry supplies, the brand they have here in Oh is arm and hammer but make sure it is NOT the detergent , it is advertised as a laundry booster like borax , I will try to attach a pic. there are a few diffrent versions of this recipie if you search for them .

    You can also find alum in the canning section of some grocery stores. It's a larger size and probably less expensive.

    Hello MaggieLou,
    Just in case you haven't tried to make this, I just made this bubble jet recipe and it works great.

    The BubbleJet 2000 is supposed to be reused. It tells you on the label. The other factor is the ingredient includes formaldehyde (sp) ---- dispose of accordingly.

    Question re: Bubble Jet Rinse

    After diluting the Bubble Jet Rinse with water as suggested on the item label, would the product remain effective if re-bottled and stored for 2 weeks? I cannot find any information and have been unsuccessful in attempts to contact the company that distributes Bubble Jet 2000 and the rinse. I hope someone can help me soon!
