    how do you guys take care of your vape after you have been sick??? I am deathly ill right now and don’t want to keep infecting myself. I’m probably just going to wipe everything down with disinfectant wipes, which I do weekly already, but if anyone has some helpful info or good practices I’d be grateful.

    I was looking at ultrasonic cleaners. Some use them when they get new atties. I'd say helps to clean as well

    I just use hot water to clean my atomizers. Soak it in a cup and I find it gets out any build up of gooey e-Liquids.

    Pretty much what I do, sometimes adding a pinch of Dawn dish washing liquid and using a pipe cleaner to scrub the most stubborn crap.

    Yes, Dawn is great for cleaning stuff. Works wonders on the stove top also~! I use it mostly to clean my bottles because it gets rid of any lasting odors from strong flavors. Some people complain about tasting soap but with proper rinsing I have never had a problem like I don't taste it on my forks.

    Dishwashing the good kind and warm water does the trick

    I use 90% isopropyl alcohol for serious atty cleaning.
    Just let it air dry for several hours afterwards.
    Can rinse with warm tap water too afterwards if you are concerned about any iso residue. It seems to leave virtually no residue if well air dried though.

    I feel sorry for the members whose O-Rings swell and the paint comes off because they used alcohol.
