Returning the film to the used developer. As Jorge points out, any additional stain you get from this procedure will be general or overall stain that serves no useful purpose and only leads to some incresase in exposure times.

Gordon Hutchings originally descrdibed this procedure in The Book of Pyro but my understanding is that he no longer recommends it.
