Here's an old trick they don't teach you young punks...
If you take that copper washer and blacken it with a match, lighter or candle (which is carbon) then use a propane torch to "burn" the carbon off, it will anneal the copper (return it to a softer state).
You'll have to heat the out of it, don't melt it (don't know if a propane torch is hot enough to melt copper) and suddenly the carbon will just disappear. Heat it NO hotter than the amount to make the carbon go away.
Then let it air cool, DON'T quench it (like drop it in a bucket of water).
It will be soft and reusable.
This will also work on the crush gaskets on drain plugs although I have never seen the need since I never had one leak.
