Vape DIY: Cleaning Your Device

Like all things, your e-cigarette will eventually lose its value if you take good care of it. A dirty one also prevents you from experiencing the full flavour of your juice. If you want your device to last for long, you’ll need to strictly follow a vape DIY set of tips. One of them is cleaning it regularly.

Clean it as often as you change flavours. But if you’re still hung up on the juice you’re using now, give it a good clean at least once a week. Here are other tips on how to clean your e-cigarette:
