    I am new to vaping as a way to quit cigarettes and really enjoy it and, also, learning about the different nicotine percentages, flavors, devices, etc. When I smoked, my windshield had the film which was a bear to clean. Since I started vaping, there is a film on the windshield, but it is much easier to clean than the cigarette film. Does vapor leave film on glass?

    Hi and welcome,
    Tobacco smoke leaves TAR on surfaces.
    Vaping leaves a PG/VG residue that comes off easily with soap and water.

    There’s also a lot less of it. I’ve heard foaming autoglass cleaner recommended. If you got window tints you might have issues. I’m assuming you’re cracking a window, yes? That drops the buildup down a whole lot.

    It also depends on vg percentage and how much your vaping. I use 60 to 70vg and only vape mtl 2 to 3mls per day, so I never see any kind of film where I vape....

    Welcome to ECF.
    There is a bit of residue left from vaping. Soap and water will take care of it. Mr. Clean pads work well too.

    There does tend to be a slight bit of film. I dont even notice it until the weather gets cold here. Water condensation/fog seems to be attracted to the vg film. I just cleaned my windows the other day. Foaming glass cleaner does wonders. Soap and water with a windex or alcohol to remove streaks and soap works well too.

    I have to agree with others on the vaping residue. It is minor and doesn't collect as quick as cigarette residue. I have not used any kind of commercial glass cleaner for quite a while. I use 1/2 tablespoon of Dawn dish soap in a gallon of hot water. It easily cleans the residue. I also use the same mixture when I clean the windows in my house. I use a couple of my white cotton shop towels. Don't use any kind of towel that was washed with a fabric softener as they will really streak the glass. Oh, hello and welcome to the forum.

    Welcome and glad you joined.
    Might like to study:
    I will NEVER vape in my car again (probably...maybe)
