    What is a EVOD? I clean my PVD 's every time I change my eliquid and my drip tips or tops every day.

    Vodka or Everclear soak over night helps. NOT Rubbing Alcohol. How often depends on liquid you use. Dark liquid gunks up heads faster. It's really up to you to decide.

    If the soak doesn't help you can dry burn by removing the friction fit center post above the coil and wick. Needle noise pliers. Then With tweezers and a torch remove and dry burn the two flavor wicks. Then place the atomizer into base and then on battery and dry burn the wick and coil in 3 second bursts. Remove burnt crust with toothpick. Then rinse in water or soak in vodka again.

    Reassemble flavor wicks and center post.
    Or rebuild

    I think soaking in alcohol swelled up the rubber parts? So now I just soak them in vinegar for 24-36 hours and have had no problems yet.

    Haven't had a problem with any swelling myself in PGA. I always toss them in overnight when they start to taste funny or when I am giving the unit a good cleaning. If they still taste bad I replace the 'flavor' wicks. If they still taste bad I rebuild them. I gave up on dry burning them since I never could get them to taste right afterwards.

    Best soak, imo, is all natural.

    1 part white vinegar mixed with 2 parts distilled water. I keep this mixture in a sealed Rubbermaid container, simply drop in the dirty clearo/tank (after running it under hot tap water first!) in the container for about 60 minutes.....Take it out with tweezers and let it dry on paper towels or a rag.

    Hey Red thanks for the advise. I'll try your way also. Just want to ask, you don't end up with a vinegary taste at all?
