For once in my life, I was one of the "cool kids" who managed to discover something new and awesome before it hits the reviewers and becomes popular/mainstream! HEHEHEHE
but that aside,
the good ole Koh Gen Do organic cotton! Organic, completely chemical free, dye-free, unbleached.
All the goodness.
nice dense yet uber soft cotton pads. Heck, they're so untreated that there are remnant little specks of seeds and what not left on the pad:
In any case I've heard folks talking about how they can't seem to figure out exactly how much of it to use, and since I've found a pretty 100% replicable way of doing it for a kayfun, thought I would share it here
first thing I always do, take a single pad and split it into half thickness.
For a 2mm coil, I've found that the perfect width of the pad to snip off is approx 2 times the width of the coil (especially if it's 2mm inner diameter):
Interestingly, I've also found that if i take each strip lengthwise (with respect to the pad), and divide that into 3 wicks as shown below, I get the exactly perfect wick length without even having to snip off any excess at the end
Once you have your wick, the first thing i do is just to massage the sucker so that it becomes a nice cylindrically shaped wick. DO NOT twist or compress it! the KGD cotton pad is already considerably dense by itself. All you wanna do is shape the wick, not squish it:
Pull the little wick through with minimal resistance! it should be firm, but not tugging and messing up the coils
juice it up, arrange the ends of the wicks and bam, it's done! no snipping whatsoever.
So yeap. Hope that helps.
I LOVE using the KGD because it's super easy to "prep" the wick, and the flavor is awesome with no break in whatsoever.
Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do
