    Greetings and Salutations,

    I've been vaping for many, many years and had hoped to never see this happen...but it seems that Washington State is about to ban Flavours of any kind except tobacco and menthol in ALL Vape Products.

    Now I have to figure out how long I can store eJuice that is commercially prepared, and also learn how to make my own basic eJuice before they stop selling the damn flavourings as well.

    So, can anyone tell me with the commercially prepared eJuices, how long they can be safely stored?

    I want to buy as much as I can possibly afford before the axe comes down and need to know.

    Also, what resources can anyone suggest for a really mentally challenged (read Old Lady on Meds) to learn how to make my own eJuice?

    Please help as I definitely do NOT want to go back to analogs, but if all I can get is tobacco flavour, I most likely will...

    Cheers,
    Shadowe

    Hello! Many of us place our surplus e liquids in the deep freeze. Not everyone agrees with this, some think that this degrades the flavor. I personally find this works fine for me. I just recently tried out a juice I'd had in the deep freeze for 3 years...and it tasted just fine, no detectable change at all. For me, I bring the juice up to room temp very slowly to minimize condensation. I freeze the juice in freezer bags...pulling it out I'll put it in another bag (double bagged) and put that in the. fridge for a day, then set it out still bagged on the counter for another day. Make sure when you get ready to use it you give the bottle a good shake in case the ingredients have separated. I'm stocking up some commercial juice this way now, even though I diy it's nice to have some variety available.

    Most commercial juice has a 2 year shelf life. The 2 years cutoff seems to be a randomly chosen one. My experience is that if ready juice is kept at room temp. in a dark place it will stay good for years. If there is a ban, I won't throw away any juice unless it tastes bad.
    Precious nicotine base is stored in amber glass bottles in the freezer. That's the consensus. If you are gonna use it within 2 years, I can't see an issue with storing it at room temp in a dark place.
    If you have 2 or 3 favorite juices, you can find simple clone recipes here at the DIY subforum or at .................... . Then order the few flavorings that go in and a nic. base solution at your current mg level (well, 15% above that to account for dilution by flavorings). So all you need to do is add flavorings to base and not worry about nicotine dilution. Easier and safer.
    Hope that helps. Sure you will get good ideas from others as well.

    A lot is going to Depend on how the Flavored e-Liquids are stored? And what Flavor they are?

    If they are in a Glass Container, and then placed in a Refrigerator, I would think they would be Fine for a Minimum of 2 Years. Probably Longer.

    Many People here on the ECF have tried putting Flavored e-Liquids in the Freezer. Sadly, the Results reported from most people is that the Flavor can be damaged. So I won't recommend putting a Flavored e-liquids the Freezer.

    No Problem putting Unflavored e-Liquids or Nicotine Base in Glass Bottles in the Freezer. In fact, that would be the Preferred method for Long Term Storage.
