A clean e-cig’s a happy e-cig: how to clean your vaping device

Do you consider yourself a vaper who’spassed beyond the novice stage? A regular, semi-experienced or fairlyexperienced vaper? If so, chances are you’ve by now used more than one e-cig devicein your time. Maybe two or three. And each one may have been an improvement onthe last; offering better performance, optimised opportunity to taste the full e juiceflavour and generating increased hits and bigger, bigger clouds of vapour.

If that sounds like you then you’ll havedefinitely gone through that moment when you’ve either bought a brand new e-cigdevice or a brand-new one’s been delivered to your door – and what happens nextis you open it up to find a gleaming, beautiful thing in front of you thatlooks… perfect. And yet, after a couple of months it doesn’t look or feel likethat anymore. Now it’s a bit dirty, maybe even clogged up with gunk and,because of that, its performance isn’t what it was and, frankly, you’rethinking about replacing it already. At least, it might be in this state shouldyou have never cleaned it – and especially if you’ve never known how toproperly clean it.

In short, regular maintenance of any andevery vape device is critical to ensure it keeps working exactly as it should –and looks up to the job too, of course. It’s key to making sure the thing candeliver more than just a few times exactly the fully-flavoured hits you boughtit for in the first place.

Whenand what to clean?

The most important part of the device tokeep clean is its tank; as it’s the component in which the e liquid UK is held,which is commonly combined with the atomiser in one complete unit. And, like itor not, you should clean the tank every time you change over flavours; yes,really – that way, your new flavour won’t be tainted by the previous one andproperly taste like it should, ensuring you get your money’s worth out of thee-juice. Additionally, it’s a good idea to give it a once-over about once aweek, irrespective of how often you change fluid.

Howto clean the tank?

So, having established the timing and aimof your clean, it’s now on to the actually clean itself. How thorough does thisneed to be, though? Well, that’s a good question; quite frankly, it’s wherecommon sense and your own judgment come into play. Is it around a week or twosince the last clean? A simple rinse’ll probably do. Or have you left it awhile since the last clean? Maybe best to opt for a deep clean. Either way,follow the steps below…

Fora simple rinse:

  • Preparea bowl of warm water
  • Removethe tank from the mod
  • Pourout any e-liquid still in the tank
  • Takethe tank apart

  • Washthem all until they’re clean – using bath soap if necessary
  • Usinga paper towel, make sure each part is dried
  • Dryout and air all the parts by allowing them to stand for 10-15 minutes
  • Putthe tank and the whole device back together again.

  • Removethe tank from the mod and pour out any e-liquid still in the tank
  • Takethe tank apart
  • Placeits separate parts into the bowl
  • Dampena cloth/ paper towel with high-proof, non-flavoured vodka and, using the latteras a solvent, scrub anywhere that needs it, so the all the tank’s constituentparts are entirely clean
