Will the bacterial properties still be effective?

My dentist gave me a sample bottle to use for gingivitis. I'm wondering, after I use it to swish my mouth, can I spit it back into the bottle and re-use it? It seems to me that the anti-bacterial properties would still work, and the bottle would last much longer. My insurance doesn't pay for the chlorhexidine.
