    just got a NGP off the classifieds and i literally cant get the previous owners blacknmild juice out of the tank. i mean i got all of the actual juice out, and rinsed the tank with water about 10 times. then i filled with banana cream pie. all i can taste is black n mild, and zero flavor of banana cream pie, and to make things even better, my orion tank cracked yesterday and i just got all my new juice today. so basically im extremely frustrated.

    I used to use hydrogen peroxide and rubbing alchol on my Ce2's, letting them soak worked fairly well

    50/50 bath

    Boil all the metal pieces and replace any o-rings. Some flavors are impossible to get out of silicone and rubber.

    Yuck that's gross. Next time, buy a new one instead of someones used one and you won't have that problem.

    Drinking isn't the best answer for extreme frustration. Just saying.

    I was thinking after a few of those, he wouldn't care what it tastes like.

    No seriously, I was just supposing the vodka might help get rid of the taste.

    Meat is on the right track. I purchased a couple drip tips from a friend and when they came the cinnamon was overwhelming. That juice had infiltrated the o-rings-lmao. Can't tell ya how many times I washed and soaked the darn things. The o-ring change did the trick. Good Luck!

    Probably half the pipes in my collection (from when I smoked pipes) are "estate pipes"--meaning they were used.

    A little soak in Everclear, or a good rinse with peroxide will make them cleaner and more sterile than they came from the factory. No worries...

    I'm sure they are free of germs after that, but to me it's like sterilzing someones used toothbrush and then using it. I'm sure those pipes have alot of teeth marks. To each his own, but to me it's gross!

    Are there any plastic or rubber parts? Even the positive post grommet. Is the tank glass or plastic?

    About 6 months after I quit smoking, I had to start being meticulous with cleaning attys. The tiniest bit of soap scent from washing my hands and touching pieces would ruin wicks and o-rings. Maybe you're experiencing the same thing.

    edit-
    Soaking in white vinegar also works best in my experience.

    Be sure to never allow a guest to drink from any of your glasses or eat a dinner at your house, unless you feed them from paper plates and cups and just throw them away. Damn!
