    Any cotton will work, but organic is better to use because it's whitened with hydrogen peroxide instead of harsher chemicals. It's best to boil your cotton and let it dry throughly before using. I use organic cotton balls from Walgreens.

    I wouldn't boil cotton balls or q-tips, but I do boil all my yarn and hemp twine. Anything that is not considered sterile should be considered contaminated with something you probably don't want to vape.

    link to the whole cotton, hemp, and bamboo as wick.

    Wick materials. Safe vs dangerous.

    I by peaches and creme 100% cotton yarn and boil it for 10-15 minutes. works and taste great. Any bad thing about cotton and it doesnt seem to last very long.
