    As I read this thread, I wince about cleaning out my PT2 of pluid. I know with that juice, anything it touches is a lost cause wreaking of citrus and black licorice. The only hope I've had with it is soaking it overnight disassembled in 91% isopropyl, rinsing it all of in hot tap water, drying it, and either changing the head and/or the base, or rewicking the head and dry burning the coils. Idk why, but any silicone in these toppers loves to absorb the scent of any juice really. It's a PIMA. As for tips and tricks, coca cola is a new one to me. I wouldn't have thought soaking a tank in a dark sugary syrupy beverage would work. :/ ?

    Coke is very acidic, plus add in the carbonation. There is the danger of pitting the metal parts from the acid. You don't want to leave parts sitting in Coke for days, it will turn it to mush...

    The nice thing about these triton tanks is they are relatively inexpensive, so you can dedicate a tank to mints, one to voodoo, etc.

    But it's the heads and wicks that are the holders of flavor. And while soaking a bunch, I can't tell which was which. But I can tell at the fist vape!

    That's what I do DaveOno.

    I have a Voodoo tank and a Kringle's tank when I want to vape straight Kringle's.

    Have alot of flavors that I add a few drops of Kringle's when I am getting tired of vaping them alone.

    As long as it's mixed with something else, it comes out of the wicks pretty easily.

    There are times though, that I love that strong Kringle's taste and want it straight.

    I have an Apple Pie that has alot of cinnamon flavor in it that has a dedicated tank as well.

    The rest of my flavors come out with just a thorough rinsing.

    Guess I've been lucky so far.

    Hey DaveOno, I forgot to tell you that you have me tasting wicks now!

    Thanks cuz it does work.

    I used to just smell them but tasting really detects the smallest bit of leftover flavor.

    There's a universal list of evil things:

    At the top are Cats, then Llamas, then Beady-Eyed Koalas, then Lime Jello, etc...leading to Penguins that just make the evil list. They aren't animals, they're actually evil children dressed in rubber tuxedos.

    I tried the Kringles Curse (free with an order) and from the first vape it was truly awful. Not for me. It took a 48 hr soak in Everclear to get the smell out of the tank, to 98%. I don't think its possible to get rid of all of it. I dumped it in my lost cause bottle, where all the 'what was I thinking' diy's go. There is about 30 ml's in it of all kinds of mistakes. So, I take a whiff of it and it doesn't smell bad at all. So, I try it. I won't do that twice. Lol. I have another unopened 10ml bottle of the Kringle stuff, free from another order, I keep for 'emergencies'. It will really have to be life threatening for me to crack it open, but its there.

    I got my name from the hockey team, not the wobbling flightless birds.

    I didn't care for Kringle's at first, but it grew on me.

    Now I make sure I have it at least once a day, if nothing else, to reset the taste buds.

    It's a simple peppermint flavor, but it's strong. It takes getting used to.

    I assume they got the name from Julius Ceaser's pet cat...
