5 Tips for Cleaning Your Vape Accessories, West Chester, Ohio

You cannot get the full vape experience without the required accessories. For example, the atomizer is required to heat the liquid and transform it into mist. Keeping it well maintained, then, is essential for a successful and enjoyable vape. Follow these five tips to ensure the proper cleaning of your vape accessories.

5 Tips for Cleaning Your Atomizer

1. Use a Q-Tip

Because the device itself is small, a regular wash rag is far too large to get inside. Likewise, something like a toothbrush is too dense and stiff. A Q-tip is much more appropriate. Because they are so soft and flexible, you won't run the risk of damaging the coils. One of the most important factors in cleaning your atomizer is ensuring those coils stay protected since they can be incredibly fragile.

2. Isopropyl Alcohol

For the general maintenance and cleaning of your vape accessories, over-the-counter isopropyl alcohol will do the trick. A single bottle will cost only a few dollars and can last for years. This will effectively kill any bacteria and wash away any dust or dirt. Simply dip your Q-tip in the liquid and gently wipe the interior.

3. Straighten a Paperclip

Even a Q-tip can’t get into the pathway; however, because dust and gunk can potentially build up inside of this tiny passage, it is imperative that it is cleaned out. To do this, straighten out a paperclip and insert one end gently into the hole. Slowly work it back and forth to break up any buildup.

4. Burn Off Wax

To ensure your atomizer continues to work, you must fight against wax buildup. One simple and quick way to clear out gunk is to heat, melt, and burn it off. This can be done within a few minutes by holding the power button down for approximately 30 seconds. The coils will heat and loosen any hardened wax.

5. Give It a Soak

If you haven’t regularly maintained your atomizer, you may need a deeper clean. You may notice blackened mineral deposit stains on the device or that it doesn't run as smoothly as before. Reverse any damage by soaking it in isopropyl alcohol for up to 30 minutes. Remember to remove the coils first, if possible. If not, allow it to dry for up to 24 hours before vaping again.
