    Default Cotton

    Have read that Cotton is a superior wicking material, but where do you buy yours?

    From What I've seen and read, people are buying unbleached cotton fabric and cotton yarn from craft shops, how safe are these options?

    Thanks for viewing thread and sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere.

    the wickstore dot com is a good place to start. they offer sample packs too so you can test different materials, thickness etc..

    You can buy a box of sterile rolled cotton from CVS pharmacy for $6 and it is approximately a life time supply. No boiling necessary

    Have you done this? I have some in the cabinet but have been concerned with trying it for the first time.

    Is it out in the store or behind the counter in the pharmacy? Thanks for the tip. Does this last as long as silica wicks?

    i just grabbed some from my wife's medicine cabinet and it worked wicks ok (but I think it's because I was using a crappy nova tank) but no weird taste or burning.

    I'm thinking even if it doesn't and you have decent coils, you can replace the cotton without taking the coil out. so you techinically replace the cotton everyday if you so desire.

    That's like all I used, until last week, when I started using Nextel XC 116.

    That rolled cotton is off the chain. Check out these threads. They're all about using rolled cotton to make the sickest of builds

    I grabbed it right off the shelf. Check out those links above for some easy builds and feedback ^.

    I vape unflavored nic base. I changed the wicks around once a week, just because I enjoy tinkering. I've never had one fail. The dry hit would let you know that it's time to wet it long before you burned it
