Expanding foam cansters, one time use?

This should be a quick question/answer....

The expanding foam canisters (like what I'll be using the insulate my windows that the previous owner didn't ), are they a one time use item, or can they be used a few times over a period of time?

I'm going to try to do a couple windows this weekend, but with the wife working, and the two boys home with me, I may only get a window here, a window there.

My experience has been with the DAPTex plus latex stuff (which is what I recommend you use). I've had them sitting for over 6 months after a use and they still worked. You can clean the tubes and nozzle with warm water.

Thank you.

That is the answer I was hoping to hear. I have a lot of windows to do (30+) and not enough time in a weekend to do them all.
