    Hot water does the trick every time. I use alcohol for the terminals. My friends plastic on a clearomizer turned white from the alcohol

    I took the advice of another poster and cleaned my clearomizers with rubbing alcohol. Empty the juice out. Fill tank with alcohol and shake. Let sit for 10 mins. Empty. Repeat until you feel it is clean enough. Then I rinse it out with hot water and let set overnight to dry.
    It worked great for me though I am switching fom clearomizers to a dual coil tank.

    I wouldn't use rubbing alcohol simply because it's more toxic than ethanol (drinking alcohol) is. I use rubbing alcohol to clean the battery contacts and ethanol to clean the t3s I have.

    Rubbing alcohol is fine, but you have to rinse whatever you're washing/soaking very, very thoroughly. You don't have to be as thorough with vodka.

    I use denatured alcohol to clean my eGo batteries and both models of Vivi Nova. It's become a method I use and suitable to how I am with cleaning, you know? I take apart the entire tank, unscrew the atty head, and wet/dab dry/repeat until the wicks are as clean as they will get.
    The silica wicks clean easier than the bamboo ones, but by and large it's more practical to re-coil the bamboo ones after only one wet/dab session. It dries super fast, and in less than 30min ready to reassemble.
    The point is, though to each their own, I can't bring myself to use water. Ever.

    So I'm seeing alot of posts about everclear and moonshine, but what is the word on rubbing alcohol? No, no? I was just literally about to sit down and clean my tanks with it.

    Ignore this post, answered above. Thanks!
