Hi, I've been using a mini did clone for almost a month now, with 400 steel mesh and 32 gauge kanthal. I get a week to a week and a half out of my wicks before they don't want to wick and I get a nasty burnt taste unless I tip it upside down before each puff. The juice I'm using is 70/30 pg/vg. To try and clean the wicks I've been running under 180 degree F water and brushing with a baby tooth brush...then dry burning the water off. This sometimes helps for a little while, but doesn't work more than once. Is there a better way to make wicks last longer, and if not, is this the average life of a ss wick?
