Spring has finally arrived, and as the weather improves and the days get longer, now is the perfect time to address those jobs that have been cluttering up your to-do list.
When was the last time you gave your electronic cigarette a good clean? If the answer is more than a few weeks ago, we’ve got some expert tips to help you clean your e-cig to have it looking (and vaping) as good as new.
What Do I Need?
It doesn’t take long to get started on your e-cigarette spring clean. For cleaning products, you only nee done slightly damp, clean cloth, a dry cloth, paper towels, and a few cotton buds. Firstly, dissemble your electronic cigarette so that you have the clearomizer, mouthpiece and battery laid out on a stable surface.
Clean Your Mouthpiece
For hygiene reasons if nothing else, it’s important to clean your mouthpiece regularly. However a dirty e-cig tip can also affect the quality and taste of your vape, so use the damp cloth to clean around and inside the mouthpiece.
Alcohol solutions aren’t necessary for this task, although you may wish to use a mild soapy solution to give it a more thorough clean. If you have a narrow or flat tip, a cotton bud can help you access the harder-to-reach areas.
Clean Your Clearomizer
Over time, your clearomizer can become clogged with e-liquid and a build-up of dirt. To clean it, place a paper towel under one end and blow hard into the other to remove excess dirt. Then,use your dry cloth/paper towels to wipe down the piece thoroughly. To clean inside, screw up a tissue or paper towel to soak up excess liquid.
For stubborn dirt, you may need to soak your clearomizer in hot water. However experts differ in opinion as to how effective this latter technique is, and if your clearomizer has deteriorated in performance/condition greatly it may be time to replace it with a new accessory for your e-cig.
Clean Your Battery
Although batteries require much less maintenance than the above accessories, you should use a dry cloth to wipe the exterior and contacts to remove any excess dirt or grease. Make sure that both the battery and contacts are completely dry before reassembling your electronic cigarette, and charge your battery before putting it back together.You should also inspect and wipe down the charger to ensure that it is in good working condition during your spring clean.
Proper care and maintenance of your e-cigarette can prolong its lifespan and ensure that you get the best performance from your device. So if you’ve neglected your e-cig maintenance for a few weeks or months, follow this simple guide to give your device a spring clean – it doesn’t take long and you’ll notice the difference when you vape after wards!
So stop putting it off, thinking you will do it later, give your electronic the once over and ensure you are enjoying the best vape that is possible.
