    Just curious - does vaping leave any film on car windows and other stuff like analogs do?

    :D:D:D:DThat question made me chuckle a bit. My car is 12 years old, and the windows haven't been washed in the past 10.

    When I'm home, I vape in the kitchen at my lap top, and I haven't noticed anything on the window next to me.

    Good question I always thought it was nicotine on the car windows it must be the tar and the other 4000 chemicals in the cigarettes that make the film on the windows because I haven’t noticed any

    I drive a semi truck with the windows up. When smoking analogs I would have to clean the windows every other day. I havent had to clean inside of windows in over a month now. Except where my dog decides to rub his nose

    I have mentioned this before--and I will again here---take two drinking glasses and keep blowing the vaper in one and cigarette smoke in the other (I had a friend who still smokes do the other glass)--and then take a look at both of them---you will be surprised what you see------Sun

    My white curtains are still white. I washed them about 2 months ago. They use to turn yellow real fast or it seemed to me.

    Have you ever blown smoke from an analog through a white cloth or rag?
    Do the same thing with your E-cig and see what it does.

    Edit: Oops, taz3cat's statement let the cat out of the bag. Didn't see that one. LOL.

    That should be two clear drinking glasses - just wanted to "clear" that up, lol. Had to pick on you, Sun... Somebody's gotta do it! ;)

    Back OT, the only thing I've noticed about vaping and windows is that if I exhale directly on a clean window the moisture will coat (fog) the glass in front of me and linger for a few seconds before it evaporates. It seems to evaporate completely. I've taken a tissue and wiped the window afterwards and there was no residue. Proof positive to me that vaping is a heck of a lot cleaner than smoking.

    I've done the same thing before (years ago) with analogs. I couldn't see residue on a clean window after a couple of exhales but when wiped with a tissue there was a yellow residue. Similar to blowing smoke through a tissue. Pretty gross when you realize that stuff is sticking to your lungs - yuck!

    I'm typing on my HP TouchSmart PC right now and vaping. The HP TouchSmart is a PC with a touchscreen. I noticed something very interesting. When I blow the vape into the screen, it goes crazy! The mouse pointer goes all over the place as if the vape is doing something to the touchscreen.

    I have a fresh atomizer with the yucky factory prime. I took a hit off of that and blew it into the screen. No crazy pointer movement. I then dripped VG liquid and took a hit. Still no movement. Finally I dripped PG liquid... No movement.

    I've come to the conclusion that nicotine does some crazy stuff to HP touchscreen PCs (or similar as it doesn't do a thing to my IPhone.

    Doesn't do that to my HP TC1100 or my son's TC4200 smoked into everything on both, helps clear out the cat/dog hair.
    Can you game a little on your HP TouchSmart PC?

    I personally think it was the analog Tar that left all of our stuff yellow not the nic

    I remember doing that when I smoked analogs and I just now went into the kitchen and got some paper towel and did the same thing with the vapor. No discoloration at all with the vapor. It did leave a little moisture but once dry there was no evidence left behind.

    I've got the IQ 770. It's screen is so ultra sensitive that flys can set it off. PG and VG won't set it off but nicotine does apparently. This is my kitchen PC and I don't generally game on it.
