Whatman filters being reused
I know that this is the wrong forum, and i am being a hypocrit posting here. However, this is a question that i must get answered ASAP as my bud is reusing his whatman filters for his homebrew (He made 40ml @250mg/ml of test e, and he is going to do it all over again with the same filter) Is this bad like i think it is, or is it ok?

It will work but I wouldn't recommend it.. You take the chance of the filter clogging the second time around and breaking loose inside.. Boy wouldnt that suck

DO NOT REUSE THE FILTERS!

That is what i thought. My understanding was that the filters were only good up to 100ml

To clean the filters you'd need iso alcohol or something similiar and you just filter the iso alcohol as if it were your gear. You then proceed to wrap the filter in aluminum foil and bake it for 20-30 minutes to evaporate off any residual iso alcohol. This will dissolve whatever particulate matter is in the filter and allow you to 'reuse' the filter. Nevertheless I don't advocate doing this.
