How to Clean Your Vaporizer

How to Clean Your Vaporizer

There are a few ways to clean a vaporizer, and they’re all incredibly easy. The first thing we need to talk about is which section of the vaporizer to clean. The only part of the vaporizer that needs regular cleaning is the tank. Leave the coils alone and never submerge your mod or batteries. If the outside of your mod is dirty, give it a once over with a damp, warm rag, but avoid ports and places where the inside of the mod may be exposed.

Before You Clean

To clean the tank, first, we’ll need to disassemble all of our parts. Remove the tank from your mod, remove your coil from the tank, and break your tank down into its individual parts (mouthpiece, reservoir, 510 connector, etc.) Be sure to rinse out any extra e-liquid before beginning the cleaning process. From here we have two options: the easy clean method and the deep clean method. For those that just want a quick cleaning process, let’s talk about the easy clean method first. Do this at least once per week and be sure to deep clean every now and then for improved flavor.

The Easy Clean Method

We’re not going to waste a lot of time on the easy clean method. Simply disassemble your tank and place the individual parts in a bowl of warm water.  We advise against using dish soap. Even if you thoroughly wash it out, the scent will often affect the vaping experience later. Run your fingers or a clean microfiber rag over the components until it no longer feels oily. Once the components are clean, there should be a noticeable difference in texture. Once finished, let the components air dry. It shouldn’t take longer than twenty minutes.

The Deep Clean Method

This second method will make your tank look and feel almost brand new. It’s nearly identical to the first method, but we’ll be replacing water with either isopropyl alcohol, ethanol, vinegar, or non-flavored vodka. Any of these will work, so use one that’s inexpensive or already around the house. Soak the components for about ten minutes, and use the finger method from the last method to check its cleanliness. If it’s necessary, use a microfiber cloth to scrub stubborn areas. Once satisfied with the condition of the parts, rinse them all with water and allow them to air dry for about twenty minutes.


That’s really all there is to it!

We recommend using the first method weekly, and the second method can be used as often as the user deems necessary. It isn’t totally necessary for a lot of people, but it’s essential for the clean-freaks like myself.
