I wipe them real good with CPAP mask cleaning wipes. It gets the buildup of easy. I drop them in a cup of hot water from my Kuerig coffee maker along with a disassembled tank at intervals for real cleaning between rebuilds. I run a twisted paper towel through the hole in the drip tip before and after going into the hot water.
I have one that I use 25hrs a week. looked at it yesterday, it had a white crust on it . so I don't think just rinsing it would work.
and I would rather not clean each one by hand.
but, I may have come up with something easy and thorough . this net thingy I came up with. put em in there, then in the dishwasher.
Hot water and Dawn...
Good idea to wipe the crud off your lips before vaping too. Just fuckin with you.
If they are really cruddy, soak for a few minutes in vodka or everclear, then ream with a qtip down the center
If you rinse with water every few days, or once a week, they will not get crud built up
Definitely clean the DT as part of attie cleaning when you rewick
I clean my drip tips constantly with a paper towel or tissue and when I change a coil the whole assembly gets a hot water soak. Unless I am in a hurry than a quick hot water rinse and dry.
hey, I'm just a cuddy kinda guy
I can't do that = it makes to much sense
While at work i just wipe em clean with a paper towel. At home warm water n dawn then dry.
There is always the pressure washer....
ok, my net thing worked. but I just put test DT's in it. the next wash I will put the rest and see how that goes.
Ouch, my jaw hurts from getting smacked on the table when it fell open
I 'm still going with the pressure washer...
ok, I put the rest in there, along with a pretty grungy tank top cap. it clean ed up like new.
Dawn is great for cleaning just about anything. Drip tips, tanks, even dishes.
Dry on LOW...
yeah, it is, but you have to put effort into it. my way, nearly no effort, and perfectly clean.
get a Teflon tip problem solved they don’t crust up really, even after a week of solid use
Drip tips can only be washed within a period extending from 2 days before a full moon until 2 days after the full moon.
and it helps if you do a rain dance and sacrifice your first born.
That is for a different vaping sect.
I just use warm water and dawn, a soft bristled toothbrush when I'm cleaning my atomizer. Sometimes I'll use a damp qtip to get the inside or a damp papertowel on the outside. Only takes a minute.
I have a Glaz and Reload in there now. I have a pic, but my comp is not recognizing it
I load up a handful into the ultrasonic cleaner and run them for a couple cycles. Wipe them down with a paper towel when they come out and they are good to go.
this is it. in the is a Glaz v2, I then added a Reload. the Glaz had dirty coils in it, the ends came out like new. next time I will fire the coils.
the netting, its from one of those poofy things girls use to wash in the bath/shower. just cut it open and take what you need.
until you try it for yourself, you do not know just how well this works.
Hot water soak, Qtips or pipe cleaners for the inside.
If I'm in a hurry, sometimes I'll use alcohol wipes to get the gunk off then a quick rinse under the tap.
That's a very cool idea. Just be careful putting acrylic, resin, or any kind of custom made plastic drip tip in the dishwasher. If you use as hot of water as I do, you could crack or melt them. Also, the extreme exposure to very hot water can loosen the glue on tips with a metal core.
I thought that also. but I "think' that mesh would be the first to go. and it is holding up just fine. time will tell. and it didn't bother the DT's that I put in there.
I always have Q-Tips around for this kind of thing when I feel the need to do it. I spray a bit of alcohol on one and run it through the DT. Let it dry thoroughly for a few minutes so it all evaporates, put it back on and enjoy. It's been working for me for both plastic and metal DT's for years now.
