    Default Cleaning clearomizers

    I know the basics of this- but what do you use to get the flavor out if switching to another flavor?

    You could soak it in white vinegar over night (rinse well afterwards!)

    Here's my regular rinse routine

    1) I rinse everything with water
    2) rinse wicks until close to white as possible
    3) dry dab wicks with paper towel
    4) dry everything else
    5) blow through airhole
    6) burn 2-3s
    7) blow, see if coils are clean
    8) if clean 9, if not 6
    9) refill

    I do that to clean them but it has not worked for me if I am testing new flavors. In another forum they are saying to use vodka or rum. Interesting info- will have to test some of the suggestions.

    Thats what I do when I'm cleaning either for same or new flavor.

    I don't use clearos to test flavors, I use ego-c type b.

    Hmm.. I did not think about that. I was an atty vaper for abt 6 months until I just got worn out from their issues. I still have my stash- I may just try that instead. Thanks!!

    It was suggested to me to soak the Vivi Nova wick heads in PGA which I later learned was EverClear or similar bought at the liquor store. I just dropped them into a shot glass filled with the EverClear just enough to cover the wick component completely and let them sit overnight. Next day rinsed them very well and dried them as well as I could.

    However, I did find out that for whatever reason, they (Vivi Nova's) don't work well with either the flavor juices I'm using or possibly the batteries (I have 2 KGO and 1 EGO Twist). Not too sure. They really only last about a day and a half for me and the coils get so gunked up that they're barely visible anymore and I have not figured out what else to do about it. Any other suggestions would be great as I'm sure this has happened to many others! Going to try the Mini Vivi Nova's soon to see if there is a difference! Did you try these MPage?

    I'm also curious what other people use to test out different flavors as well.

    Right now I have 4 Boges with 4 different flavors going at all times. If I decide to try another flavor, I usually add it to the Pillow Dreams Boge, but then if I switch back to the original flavor, I can never get rid of the newly added one.

    Hmm.... what to do? I have so many samples I want to try and not enough Boges to try em all, but don't really want to use them all up just to try my awesome flavors!!! The Vision Ego's just leak to much to try new flavors because there is just too much liquid loss and it's not worth it

    What else is there to try new flavors? MPage... I share your dilemma!!!

    ^ That. No need for rum, vodka, tequila or whatever else you want to party with. Plain old water and a dry burn works just fine, takes literally minutes and I am back to vaping.

    Cartomizers are cheap. Two days on a dollar something carto is a bargain and then you just toss it and get a new one and there is usually plenty to sacrifice one on a new flavor. I have found with VV juices, if I like the smell of them initially, I usually like vaping them so there is very little hit and miss. I get the Smok Tec carto deal from VV, and for the last few months, I have not had to clean or fix a thing. I am currently using a KGO kit pretty much full time. It's just too easy. Throw the carto in the trash, drink the vodka.
