Leaking oil from o-ring on new spark plug... Ok to reuse?

While changing out my plugs, I noticed one of the chambers had oil in it. Since I only bought plugs and no o-rings, I only replaced the plugs, including the one in the leaking chamber. It's probably gonna take at least a week or two before I can replace the o-rings. Is the new plug going to be ok to reuse if oil gets on it?

Yes, a little oil is no harm...just clean it before putting it back in again.
