Your trusty vape device might vape smoothly but it will still need some TLC every now and again.
So you’ve had your vape device for a while now. Everything is running like clockwork, you’re enjoying those new vape flavoursyou’ve just bought from your local vape shop and you’re ready to blow some killer clouds. But then tragedy strikes, your vape device stops working. You don’t know what’s wrong, it could be an old coil, it could be a dead battery or it could be that you’ve neglected to clean it for a long time. Vape devices need a good spring clean, just like any other everyday accessory, so taking the time out to make sure it’s had a good servicing is vital if you want your device to run smoothly.
Why should you clean a vape device?
It’s simple really; cleaning your vape device will enhance its performance. Without a clean every now and again your device could fall into a state of disrepair. Whether that means that the vape flavour tastes worse or you have diminishing power from the usually sub ohm device is all evidence of the need for a vape clean.
Gunk build up
E liquids are made from a variety of ingredients which react to temperature changes. This is how they turn from liquid into water vapour. With ingredients including propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, both solvents derived from plant matter, it’s easy to see how once heated, the liquid can turn back into solid and cause gunk to build up in the mouthpiece and tank. The saturation of the wick, the part of the atomiser which is heated up to allow the vapour to be inhaled, is also a process which can lead to a clogging. objectively , this is all just a result of adding a liquid mix into an electronic device with small parts.
Have you ever suffered from vapers tongue? This ailment is a blanket term but often denotes a used up coil. The burnt taste you often get from a dodgy coil can be due to the fact that the metal it’s made from is susceptible to heat reactions. The coil is the part of the vape device which connects the battery with the atomiser, allowing the vape juice to be heated up through the electricity running through the coil although these can come in all manner of shapes and sizes, the coil will eventually have to be replaced due to its being used up.
When you change flavours
Changing your vape flavourscan necessitate an interior rinse of your device. When you need to refill your tank and decide to try a new one, you can end up with an unwanted flavour mix and match. Unless intended, this can lead to some weird and unsavoury tastes, which unless you’re prone to experimentation with your vape juice, is probably not going to go down well with the everyday vaper.
How to clean your vape device
It can be very easy to clean a vape device, taking very little time at all to give your equipment a good rinse out. There are various methods, all of them catering to a vape users different needs. What’s great is that both of the major methods of cleaning your device require little preparation and can be undertaken with goods already in your house.

A mild rinse is useful for the everyday clean. When your device is not in dire need of a clean, this thorough yet quick method of rinsing will have your device ready to go in no time.
For the mild rinse, the first thing you must do is fill up a bowl with warm water, ensuring that the bowl is big enough to fit all of your vape devices parts in. Once you’ve done this, take the tank off your vape device and get rid of any e liquid inside of it, either by disposing of it or siphoning it into a refill carton. Take your device completely apart and place all of the parts in a bowl. These parts will consist of the vape tank, the mouthpiece, the body of the vape and the coil. If the coil is worn out, throw away the old one for replacing when you reassemble your vape device. Wash out the tank with the water, only using soap if it has got very dirty. Take out each part of the device and dry separately with a cloth, letting them stand to dry for a 10 minutes before reassembling your device.
The deep clean uses the same process as a mild clean, but opts for other liquids than water. This can include vinegar or alcohol or even vape juice base compound propylene glycol if you can get your hands on it. This will ensure that your vape device is bacteria free and that any grit has been thoroughly dislodged.
