In my case, I have a protocol that I never test myself, but some people
used it and were satisfied:
soak your membrane NaOH 0.4N for 40-45 min at 46°C,
then treat it 2 times in (Tris-HCl 0.5M pH7,NaCl 3M),
and to make an end for this protocol rince your membrane with 2SSC for 10 min.
I hope, this procedure work in your hands. I think you can reuse tour
membrane 2 or 3 times.
