Cleanliness is not just about keeping yourself clean; if you want your vape gear to stay in tip-top shape, you’ve got to clean your stuff frequently. Once a week at a minimum, several times a week in an ideal world. Think you don’t have time? Here’s what you need to know about cleaning your vape gear, and how simple it actually is to do so. So, no more excuses. Make the time, and keep yo’ stuff clean!
Why Clean? It’s Just Vapor… (Insert whiny voice).
Because e-liquid is liquid and NOT vapor, and it can seriously get stuck EVERYWHERE. And your device comes in several parts. And you hold it with your (probably gnarly fingers) and you vape on it with your mouth full of germs. It’s a personal use item; your vaporizers and e-cigs are going to get dirty! Did that scare you?
As mentioned above, at least once a week, but hey, daily wouldn’t be bad either, to get down and dirty with all the intimate details. The best cleaning supplies to keep handy are:
- A cotton swab
- A clean, soft, damp cloth made of cotton or microfibre
- Something sharp (like a safety pin) to dislodge any stuck, dried up pieces of liquid
- An old toothbrush for scrubbing
How to Clean E-Cigs:
Take your device apart; disconnect everything. Wipe all parts thoroughly with your soft cloth, and as you do so, examine for dried up chunks of liquid. Along the area where the cartridge screws onto the battery is particularly susceptible, there may be liquid dried into the crevices. If so, use the toothbrush to give it a good scrub. If it still needs some help, carefully use the sharp tip of the pin to pick at it.
When everything has been cleaned completely, your device will be ready vaping! Difficult, right? So, get busy and get cleaning! Better performance, and a nice clean e-cig awaits you!
