Best DeoxIT procedure for RF connectors with multiple re-connections

Q: (19652)

When applying your DeoxIT® Shield and DeoxIT® Gold, does the applied contact area need to stay wet or can it be wiped off an still be effective? If either is applied to an RF connector and the connector is connected to a mating connector, does your Shield or Gold products need to be reapplied to be effective or can the connector(s) be used several times before reapplying? Thanks for your time.
