    Always wear gloves while handling / mixing liquids.

    I keep everything on a tray, an old cookie sheet with an edge around it so if there is a spill, it's confined.

    1) consider all items that nicotine comes in contact with to be contaminated and not usable for anything else

    2) mix your flavors first until you are satisfied with the result, then add the nicotine to prevent waste

    3) start with simple flavors first to get the hang of mixing, then increase complexity with multiple ingredients as you get better at mixing

    Thank you for the contest!

    Extra tips Doesnt need to count for contest .

    Always rinse syringes really well before making different flavors to not contaminate the next batch.

    Also all drops are not created equal.I have found its better to always measure with a syringe than use the drop measurements from any of the e juice calculators.

    1: Takes notes on everything you do.
    2: Makes anything new in a small amount, if you make something too strong you can add to it. If the bottle is already full you have trouble.
    3: Treat the nic concentrate seriously, cap it as soon as you are done. No distractions I.E. Cats, dogs, children.
    4: Start flavoring at a smaller % to try new ones, if it is not strong enough add more, remember take notes.
    5: Always use the same syringe, needle, or dropper for the same liquids and part to be consistent.
    6: You will be hesitant or even afraid on your first try, after that it gets easier and easier.
    7: When purchasing flavors to try get small bottles, that way if you don't like the flavor you have not wasted more money on a larger bottle.
    8: You can find VG "glycerin" at Wal-mart in the pharmacy section "USP" grade
    9: There are a ton of people who are willing to help, just ask

    Have not ventured into DIY yet, but so far I'd say to read all these posts. Some great ideas here.

    Label everything thoroughly. It's easy to forget what's in all those little bottles if you don't stay organized.
