Make sure you clean different tanks separately to keep the parts aligned. Remember to grab a towel before starting the process. Place your vaporizer or e-cig upside down prior to removing the tank from the battery. This prevents your e-Cig juice from spilling out if you have a bottom coil system. Unscrew the atomizer from the base of the tank and remove the mouthpiece .
Essentially you are completely disengaging the unit, similar to how you would a gun. (Pro tip, take a picture of your unit while it is totally broken down to remember how it goes back together.) Make sure your sink stopper is secure to prevent your parts from falling down the drain. Next, turn on your water and begin to rinse all of your parts out with fresh water. Top coil atomizer tanks will need to have their wick threads cleansed as well. That’s right; remove left-over e-liquid by soaking your e-cig parts in gin for at least 2 hours. This is especially helpful if you plan on filling your tank back up with a different flavor of e-liquid. Keep your device clean, your vape smelling and tasting incredible, and be healthier by cleaning your atomizer coil on a regular basis.
In general, the process listed above takes no more than 30 healthy minutes to complete, so there really is no excuse. This is the recommended and most effective first step to take when deciding to clean your atomizer head. Not only is it easy, it also takes the least amount of time to accomplish. Make sure that any wicking material is removed from the coil or atomizer before attempting this as you’re definitely going to be burning up anything that isn’t a coil when dry burning your atomizer. After removing the wicking material, gently pulse/dry burn the coil for 2-4 seconds until you see the coil starting to glow. You’ll notice a few dark spots stand out amidst the glow which will quickly dissipate or burn. Repeat this process 2-3 times until the coil burns a nice and clean orange, indicating that your coil is now gunk-free. If you find yourself in the situation where your atomizer is already starting to taste like burnt pancakes but you don’t have any tools or wicking material on hand, using a Q-tip is also an effective way to spot clean your atomizer head that doesn’t require removing or replacing the wick. Simply dip a Q-tip in isopropyl alcohol and gently swab it over the coil until all the gunk sticking to the coil has been cleaned out. You can also use the same method to clean the rest of the internals of the atomizer such as the airflow channels or juice well as these areas are often difficult to reach without a Q-tip. Take note that this method won’t completely clean your coils, at least not at the level of a proper dry burn, but it’s very effective for on-the-go maintenance. Often considered the “deep clean”, this method is the most thorough and effective ways to ensure that your atomizer is squeaky clean to the point that it looks like it just came out of the box. It’s still fairly easy to do but requires you to remove the coil so it’s best done when you decide to swap out the coil. You’ll need a warm bowl of soap water or isopropyl alcohol, although the latter is more effective at breaking down all the gunk that’s built up. Drop the atomizer in the bowl and let it soak for about 30 minutes giving ample time for the alcohol or soapy water to work its magic. After that’s done, dry the atomizer with paper towels and let it air dry until you’re confident that all the nooks and crannies of your atomizer are completely dry and liquid free. Also take note that if you choose to use soap water for this method, make sure to rinse the atomizer with clean water after soaking and before drying to wash off any soapy residue. If you find that a Q-tip is too large to fit into the tight airflow slots your atomizer has, a paper clip will work just fine as an alternative. Simply unbend it to a straight wire-like tool and use it scrape and dislodge any gunk or residue that might’ve found its way to your atomizer’s air flow channels. After you’ve loosened the residue, its also a good idea to wrap the end of the paper clip with a bit of wet cotton or tissue in order to let it grab all those loose gunky bits. This will guarantee that anything leftover inside the airflow slots will be cleaned out. While it may seem overly simple, a good and hard blow (not suck) on the atomizer can help in flushing out anything that might be clogging up the airflow slots. This won’t remove residue that’s truly stuck to the insides unless the gunk has built up to a point where the airflow is mostly closed off already. The paper clip method is a bit more thorough, but blowing out the atomizer doesn’t take much so it’s always worth a try. Dirt or residue from vaping doesn’t just affect how well your atomizer heats up your product, it can also get in the way of the contacts that facilitate the flow of current from your battery to the atomizer. Make sure that the connections and any threading that connects the atomizer to the coil are completely clean and free of dust, lint or any other debris. Failing to clean the contacts can prove to be a fire hazard as whatever is trapped between your atomizers contacts can easily combust from the heat transfer. Just make sure that the threads and contacts are completely dry after cleaning before use as any leftover liquid can easily cause a short in the atomizer or worse. After all the above steps have been applied, it’s usually a good idea to give your atomizer one last burn. This helps get rid off any stubborn residue that the previous methods failed to get rid off.
Take note that this method is only advisable for atomizers that use metal coils. Ceramic coils will eventually pop, crack, and break when exposed to enough heat so always keep that in mind before doing this step. When humans change natural habitats by building houses and roads, wildlife sometimes needs a helping hand to survive. Some people plant gardens for butterflies, dig ponds for frogs, or build houses for birds and bats. In Florida you can help native treefrogs by building houses for them. Treefrog houses give the frogs a shady, safe place to hang out during the day, and a place to sit at night and watch for tasty roaches, beetles, and spiders. In neighborhoods, people sometimes let their cats live or play outside, because they do not understand that cats eat millions of Florida's birds, lizards, and frogs every year.
Treefrog houses can help to protect treefrogs from cats and other animals that might try to eat them.
