Due to the mouthpiece being the vapor pathway and the closest place to the chamber and your mouth, it can tend to acquire the most residue. Simply apply a damp cotton ball or cloth to wipe away any residue. Feel free to use isopropyl alcohol but check your manual before applying any liquids to it. Some mouthpieces are designed to be dropped in warm water. This is ideal and recommended while you clean your vape pen. If your mouthpiece is made out of glass, feel free to put it in a ziplock bag with isopropyl alcohol and salt. Not only will it soften it up but the salt will break the gunk apart. You can then drop it in a cup of warm water to make sure it’s cleaned.
If it’s not glass, you can open the mouthpiece as much as you can and use rubbing alcohol. If you grind up your herbs very fine, this will be something to clean too.
