My current wicking method involves lining up a pad of Koh Gen Do cotton alongside my wrapped coil and cutting it to approximately 1.5 the width of the coil. Remove the outer layer from each side of the strip, roll it to conform the shape of the coil and insert it through the coil. Bring a tail to the base of the tank, from the outside, and cut it a little short of reaching the base. Then split/spread the tail and snip off cotton from the center, roll it back together again and push it down to the base of the tank through the JFH. Lastly I'll juice the wick and tank and use an allen key to poke a hole into each JFH to create the necessary gap for air to travel back into the tank. As for cleaning the coil: I'll dry fire it and run it under a running tap. Holding your mod sideways will not only help with keeping it dry, but also reduce the chances of water running into the tank. If a little water does make its way inside, I simply run a strip of cotton through a JFH to the base to absorb it. I perform all this while the tank is assembled as I detest disassembling it; the resistance jumping issue annoys me. There are many ways to go about it and I'm sure you'll eventually find one that works for you. All the best. Keep calm and vape on.
