Keeping it clean

Posted by

While performing routine device maintenance like changing coils and cleaning up your tank, something frequently overlooked is your drip tip or mouthpiece. It is a good practice to regularly clean your drip tip, at least once a week. There are a few ways you can go about this, one is to wash it using hot water and dish soap, using isopropyl alcohol and some cotton swabs, or if you have access to one, and ultrasonic cleaner. Vapes are frequently put in pockets, purses, or bags, and then put in your mouth dozens of times a day, often without second thought. Keeping it clean can help prevent the growth of bacteria and keep you from getting sick.

We also recommend against sharing devices with any one, especially now. Your friend may have a new flavor they want you to try, or a new device you want to check out and see if you like, but that might not be in your best interest. Think about it, using someone else’s vape is like kissing your best friend, their mouth has been all over that device! The human mouth is not the most sanitary of places, so don’t kiss your buddy, use your own device.

Vaping is a great visual representation of how far your breath can and will travel when you exhale. When you exhale vapor and the cloud goes everywhere, that is your breath carrying it. If you are sick or have been exposed to something and you blow your vape at someone, all those germs are going to shower them. Please be mindful of others when vaping around them, blow your vapor in the opposite direction, or excuse yourself so you aren’t spreading any potential illness, and don’t be afraid to ask the same of those around you.

One last thing you can do to protect yourself and your health is to change your coils regularly. Coils can acquire dust, lint, and all sorts of other debris from day to day life, and when you use your device you are going to inhale that debris. Changing your coil at least once a month, ideally every other week, is a great way to keep your vape device clean, and keep you from inhaling that junk.
