Green Soap

Hi All, Here's a question that may seem silly to you, but I'm unsure. My understanding is that at the beginning of the tattooing process we use an alcohol prep pad or similar to prepare the skin/kill bacteria, and after that throughout the tattooing process we use green soap or something like it with paper towels to wash ink and blood from the tattoo as we work. The green soap bottle: do you fill it for each tattoo and throw the whole damn thing away when you're done? OR if you bag it do you just toss the bag when you're done and the bottle and contents are good to go for your next client? Seems like cross contamination would be a risk the second way. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
