Can it be reused after stripping a model car or two in it? When is it time to get more?

I have a tub of it out in the garage that has been there at least a couple years. Many bodies have gone thru it and more will. All I can tell you is keep dipping 'till it stops. :)

Erik, when it gets dirty just strain it through a coffee filter into another container, and you will be good to go for awile longer! :D

There was another thread just like this a couple of weeks ago, and the consensus was the same: It works until it stops working. Then you replace it.

If you filter it after each use, it will last a long time.

Also, Purple Power has an industrial alcohol component in it which helps to soften the paint on a model car. This alcohol, like any sort of alcohol, will evaporate over time, which will diminish the action of the stuff as a paint remover.

I've had mine gel up for some reason. Don't know why, just did.

Don't know but be careful with the jugs, I pour mine back into the jug after stripping a body. I have had two one gallon jugs of Purple Power develope leaks. One brand new jug and another that had stripped four or five bodies, neither was ever dropped while in my possession, both drained dry. Has any one else had this happen? I now store the stuff in the jug in a five gallon bucket, secondary containment system.
