That's pretty much what I do as well except that I keep D-76 replentished for 6 
months
at a time and I keep the PermaWash/KRST toner mixture around for a month or so.

The plain fact is that I don't know. I think the alcohol might evaporate but if 
the container is sealed most of the time perhaps it won't. There may be other 
reasons for making it up as needed. It seems to me that diluted solutions of 
Photo-Flo are vulnerable to mold. I suspect Jerry or one of the other chemists 
here could give a more definite answer.
