    I have experimented and have this process perfected.

    First remove the tempered glass carefully

    Have a bowl of water with dish soap in it(dawn etc...)

    Dip the protector in the liquid while rubbing it with your fingers while under soapy water

    Remove it from the bowl holding only by the sides and making note of which side is the screen side

    Run it under a faucet to remove suds

    Sit down with a hair dryer and blow dry it on high blower and medium heat while shaking water off. It should only have a few drops of water on it when done and not totally dry.

    Place it on a clean phone screen then apply as normal and push any air toward the side or bottom. I have re-used one of these 5 times before without issue with great results

    If the screen protector is still good, why would you need to reuse it? I replace mine when they crack. They don't allow dust to get under them.

    Why??

    That’s pretty cool. Good if all you got is one left and mess up the application I suppose. Not sure why I’d wanna reuse a screen protector that’s used up already and scratched up and stuff.
