    May seem like a weird topic, but when I vape with appreciable vapor, my eyeglasses get clouded up from it. I don't mean they steam up, a film is left on the lenses. Is this common and any suggestions?

    The stuff you're vaping VG/PG/Nic/flavors etc. has to end up somewhere I would assume. If somebody vapes and keeps blowing on the same window, then I suppose that the window will eventually have to be cleaned.

    I'm fairly fastidious about keeping my glasses clean and I don't really have much trouble with it; perhaps because I don't blow big clouds. :)

    When my glasses do get dirty, "Purity" lens cleaner and a micro-fiber cloth are the ticket.

    Not weird. VG. I notice it also. I just wash my eyeglasses with hot water and dish soap at the sink nightly before going to bed (and i don't vape by any electronics - which pretty much means in the house).

    If seeing your cloud is a big part of vaping to you, and you vape a lot, VG makes up most of your juice. That stuff sticks to everything when it finally settles.

    Countertops. Dishes. Tables. Furniture. The Cat.

    And your glasses.

    I do get a film on my glasses which I assume is from vaping. I clean the lenses a couple of times a day and it can make a big difference. Most noticeable when I'm using the computer.

    As far as keeping them clean I had a jolting experience recently. One of the lenses fell out, and I decided to install new nose pads while I replaced the lens. No way I could see those tiny screws so I broke out the magnifying headset.

    It was an ugly thing to see at high magnification. The lenses surfaces were fairly clean but the frame was bad. The frame parts where the lens meets the frame were covered in corrosion and muck. The worst area was the face side of the bridge pieces between the two sides.

    After I finished I put them in the UC for a while with some Dawn. I didn't get around to rechecking them with the magnifier yet but I'm hoping the UC helped. Kind of scary having something that dirty so close to the eyes all day.

    Try exhaling the vapor down towards the floor instead of up towards to ceiling. You'll still need to clean your glasses but with less frequency. Maybe.

    That stuff collects inside of electronic equipment, also. TV's, stereos, computers, game consoles. Dust sticks to the film residue, and can cause the electronic equipment to overheat. Just ask Battey Mooch who discussed this topic in one of his podcasts. He never vapes in the room where his testing equipment is; in fact he only vapes outside his apartment.

    I get cloudiness on my magnification glasses (but I'm usually building and that means some eliquid is going to go places as I saturate my wick.

    I am a happy contact wearer, those don't seem to cloud up.... Of course that solution isn't for everyone. I do have to clean my computer with more frequency though...

    I don't have any issues with it collecting on my glasses. I have much bigger issues with dust!

    Seriously, though, with all the stuff that gets on your glasses forcing you to clean them constantly... vapor should be a minor concern, I would think.

    The best I can suggest is make sure you're blowing the vapor out hard so it isn't in your face. I don't get any vapor in my face, which may be why I don't have the same issue.

    Yep. Desktop computer systems and big gaming systems with fans the size of commercial air handlers are prime victims.

    I bought a Honeywell air purifier last month. The instructions said I'd need to change the filter every three months. I'm already ordering a box of filters that cost almost as much as the unit! I did get a case of them that should last a year at this rate but I'm wondering if Honeywell and the company that makes inkjet printers are owned by the same people.

    I bought another unit for the family room and since I don't vape in there, its filter is just fine.

    I remember buying a small air purifier many years ago, way before I ever began vaping. I was still smoking cigs at the time.

    Those replacement filters sure had to be replaced pretty often and yeah, the cost quickly adds up.

    And also, the machine I had, I don't remember exactly which model, was kind of loud and I found the noise annoying, so I just threw it out one day.
