How to Clean Vape Tanks?


Why clean your vape tanks?

A clean vape is a happy vape. Cleaning the vape tank is the easiest way to enjoy the best performance from your vaping device. As you know, after vaping for some time, you will find the residue will accumulate in your vape tank and the buildup will eventually have a negative influence on the performance of it. Besides, VG and other flavorings found in the e-juice are notorious for gunking up coils and a gunked up coil will have poor flavor and less vapor production, making the vape taste burnt. Although you have changed the coil head, you can still taste the flavor from your last juice in your vape tank. This is especially true when it comes to some dominant flavors such as tobacco, coffee and menthol.

Then how to clean a vape tank – 4 methods? 

Since cleaning the vape tank is very necessary, so how to clean a vape tank? Fortunately, cleaning a vape tank isn’t as difficult as you might think. Here are four simple and super easy ways to clean your vape tank.

Using Pure Water to Clean the Tank 

If your vape tank is relatively clean, warm water will do the trick. You need to take the tank apart and separate the parts. Then put each part under running water and use a piece of paper towel to dry them. After that, you can let them dry until no water is visible.

However, if you haven’t cleaned your vape tank for some time, you may need to add additional steps. Firstly, take a cup, fill it with water and put it in the microwave to heat it for about two minutes. Meanwhile, you need to rinse all parts of your vape tank under the sink. After that, take the cup out of the microwave and put all parts of tank in it. Let it sit until the water cools, and then let your tank rinse under the sink for the last time. Gently dry your vape tank with a paper towel. Finally, let them dry completely.

Using Pure PG to Clean the Tank 

In addition to using water, you can also clean your vape tank with pure PG (propylene glycol) as it is very effective at removing any residual odor in the tank. You just need fill a cup with pure PG and let your disassembled tank sit there for one or two hours. However, do not use VG because it is much thicker than PG and would make it more difficult to clean your vape tank.

After that, you need to stand your tank on a napkin to let it drip dry. As PG is an excellent flavor carrier, this is an excellent method to remove the residual flavor.

Using Cleaning Agent to Clean the Tank 

However, if you are not satisfied with the results of the two cleaning methods that I have mentioned above and want better results, you can choose to use the cleaning agent to clean your vape tank.

You can use baking soda, which is a great cleaning agent that can be used to get your tank sparking again. You can also use ethanol, which is also known as grain alcohol, as another effective cleaner. Another very effective cleaning agent is vinegar. However, after use, you need to rinse your tank thoroughly to prevent its lingering odor. The last effective cleaning agent is cheap vodka. It is not a household item, but you can probably buy it from a grocery store. It works very well and does cost you too much.

Using Ultrasonic Cleaner to Clean the Tank 

If you are still not satisfied with the results of the cleaning agents, and want to get the most thorough cleaning of your vape tanks, an ultrasonic cleaner is highly recommended. Ultrasonic cleaners are usually used to clean jewelry and other precious metals, but now they are used by vapers around the world to clean their vape tanks.

It is very simple to use to an ultrasonic cleaner. You just need to fill it with water and run it until it cleans all the parts of your vape tank. You can also add a few drops of dish-washing liquid to the ultrasonic cleaner for even better results. After that, just rinse your vape tank again and let it dry.
