I've got a big 22g tube of ceramanique (which cant be reused) so I don't tend to do this often, but sometimes, for the sake of time it's just easier to be careful not to contaminate the compound than to clean, then apply more, and the differance in performance is quite small, and once it's been broken in again theres pretty much no differance.

If your experimenting with something like wiring pins for voltage or bus speeds then theres no problem keeping the same stuff on as long as it isn't a compound that drys, I used the phase change pad on the heatsink when working out what pins needed to be wired on my celeron to under clock/volt it and then used ceramanique once I'd figured it out.
"Well yes but I'm afraid I prematurely shot my wod on what was supposed to be a dry run if you will, so now I'm afraid I have something of a mess on my hands."

na, just get whatever white goop is still on the HSF, clean it a bit by rubbing it on the carpet, and wack it back on. Maybe with a bit of spit if its dry. It must work. Else Dell wouldn't do it.
