    Cleaned 5 heads. some with hot water & some with Everclear & let them sit for 3 days. None want to wick now. Any ideas?

    I know the alcohol is a common practice but personally avoid the risk.

    Alcohol evaporates very quickly. It is also used in many flavoring and to dilute very thick juices (or to increase TH). There is no danger in vaping eliquids with a little alcohol added--unless there are other reasons to avoid alcohol.

    Prime the coils with a little PG or VG or whatever juice you're using?

    Just wanted to extend some serious gratitude. Bought a pack of 1.8 ohm Kangertech coil heads, and was certain I'd be throwing them out after using them. Your contribution saved me some cash. This technique worked amazingly well, and the coil heads seem to be functioning as good, if not better than, when I first bought them.

    Again, thanks.

    I rebuild my coils for my eVods, and when I change flavor, I take the whole thing apart except for the coil and bottom pin. I rinse everything under the hot tap to wash off the liquid. Then I put the whole lot in hot distilled water for about five minutes. After five minutes I change the water, and then after another five minutes I change the water again. Afterwards I dry the lot with a paper towel, and leave to dry overnight, I then put in two new wicks the following day. I usually have two coils on rotation, though I have many more built and ready to use.

    I am considering washing the tank and base only and not washing the coil every time, but simply changing the wicks, and only cleaning the coils every two weeks or so. I don't think they need it. I'm quite possibly overdoing it.

    You are for the most part. There are SOME flavors that will "stain" tanks but I usually just dump my tank and fill with new flavor and boom, its ready. I USED to move heaven and earth to clean my tank but when I found it didn't matter most the time I stopped doing it
