    I've been dripping for awhile using a cotton wick and i love it. My question for those with more experience in this is how many flavors will you use on a single wick? I constantly change flavors and dripping is great for that, but after the first couple hits, on a dif flavor, it starts to get a mixed taste. Sometimes that's great other times not so much. Ie I'm curious if there's a general guideline on this.

    When I tire of a flavor I sometimes vape it away w/ unflavored and sometimes pull the wick and start over.
    Depends on mood and flavor staying power.

    I do the same, but I'm mainly wanting to know for when I drip at work. Changing the wick at home, no prob. Changing it on my lunch break I can do but that's valuable vape time lost which after I eat I only get 20ish mins to get my fix in.

    Not sure what dripper you use but with my little Igo-s I just pop the top off and run some tap water over the coil and wick then gently soak up the water with a paper towel. Works like a charm when you're in a hurry and don't want to mess around with a new cotton wick. Although making a new wick is almost just as fast. LOL The only draw back is if your coil is already gunked up from a previous juice. Then your new juice might be a little off.

    It really depends on the size of the wick, though if it's a small wick fitted through a 1/16" micro-coil, I'll normally just dry burn until the coils just begin to glow, stop, repeat and then drip the new flavor. Since a number of the flavors I vape, right now, are similar (vanilla's, custards, caramels and light tobaccos), it's not a major issue. The only time I have to change the wick is if I switch to fruit.

    I change the cotton, but don't drip at work. At work I use a mini Protank or IBTanked carto tank (and fantasize that I'm at home dripping).

    I only change my wicks when they're old and nasty... about once every week or 2. Besides that, I change flavors at least 4 or 5 times a day without doing anything. After a few drip sessions with a new flavor, the old flavor is more or less gone.

    I'm ocd..I change cotton every time, and will even rinse off remaining liquid on deck. I mainly use drippers when trying new flavors, or when I don't have time to load a tank of the flavor I want.

    I do the same here to a T. Except I use drippers when ever I'm home. But really it only takes a few minutes at most. That's what I love about cotton. Just pull it out, quick rinse of the deck, pop a new wick in. The more you do it the faster it will go.

    The Peaches and Cream cotton yarn works good for doing a quick wick change. Cut some pieces to your desired length and place in a small plastic bag to carry with you when out of the house. If you wind your coil with a .075 ID, the yarn will fit perfectly without having to remove any threads from it. Just pull out the old wick, do a quick dry burn, wipe off any remaining juice from the deck and insert new wick.

    I've read a lot of ppl using the peaches and cream yarn. I'll admit it does sound convenient but I've got the cotton ball approach hitting perfectly for me, at least on a single coil. I try to avoid fixing things until they are broke :p thanks for the input y'all.

    I like that idea of the .075 ID. I have one dripper, an Omega, and a couple of Kayfuns which I have been using a #44 drill bit to wind coils on. The #44 is .086. A doubled piece of P&C yarn slides through with just the right amount of tension. I bend a piece of kanthal into a V, and use it to pull the doubled piece of yarn through the coil.
