    I don't always wash them when reusing for similar tobaccos. When I do I run them through the dishwasher.

    I read somewhere that the smell of the tobacco can retain/linger on the rubber part of the used lids. So a lot of people replace the lids so that there tobacco is not infused with another tobacco's smell. People also replace the lids, because the rubber can wear out. Lids are pretty cheap to buy. You could run the lids through the dishwasher, but more than likely the rubber would be damaged from the heat.

    Once the lid is used and flattened on the jar, then removed, it is compromised, if only slightly. I reuse my lids for my 'open tobacco jars', but if I'm jarring up stuff for the cellar, I always use new lids.

    You can buy a replacement box of 10 lids (not bands) for around $1.45, you may as well change them out.

    They are cheap enough it is worth the peace of mind to know that when you go to open the jar in a year or more down the road your precious cargo will not have been compromised.

    I throw mine out and get a new jar for each new tobacco tin. They are dirt cheap at the dollar store or wally world

    why? at the dollar store I can get a package of 4 for $1.00 with lids. Much cheaper than wally world and they are from the same company.
