You can clean them and use them again.

Soak the coil to be reused in alcohol (high-proof grain alcohol like Everclear is ideal, but 90% isopropyl will do) for roughly 3-5 hours. This is to ensure any gunk built up in the coil is loosened and removed.

After this, rinse the coil in running water for a solid 3-5 minutes, as hot as you can comfortably stand. This is to ensure you're rinsing out ALL of the alcohol (since you can't very well vape that).

Then, let it air dry for a good 20-24 hours to ensure it completely dries. I sometimes put mine atop my computer case's outward fan to help speed things up and ensure a full dry.

After this, your coil should be ready to use again.

Do bear in mind that this only really works once, and the flavor will only be roughly 80% of what it was when the coil was new. If you've burned the coil at all, it's no good and this won't save it.
