    Hey folks
    I spilled an expensive juice on my desk the other day, and i sucked it up with the syringe and put it back in the bottle.
    And now e juice tastes little funky, should i not have done that?
    I started tripping over it after i tasted it, because they use some chemicals to finish off wooden furniture.
    Desk is older than 8 years.
    Can those chemicals leech into ejuice from a desk that old?

    was it on the desk for longer than 3 seconds?

    I dont know if the 3 second rule applies to e-liquid?

    Lick your desk. If you trip over, it's the desk. If you're okay, it's not the desk.

    My desk was matte. It looks waxed and shiny from how much e-juice i've spilled on it. When I lick mine I taste limes and blueberries.

    A general rule I go by is that if the juice left the bottle, it doesn't go back into that bottle. It is too easy to contaminate a good bottle of juice with a small amount of contaminated juice.

    I think that rule is for micro-organisms only, and i'm not worried about that since PG has antibacterial properties and most micro-organisms die immediately when exposed to heat.
    I'm just worried about the chemicals that might be used to finish off the desk.
    And yeah juice was on the desk for 1-2 mins

    Well i didn't trip over but it doesn't exactly taste great.Idk.

    If the juice has any alcohol in it, it may affect a lacquer or waxed finish.

    I don't know what chemicals you mean, the ones naturally in the wood or the finish applied to it?
    Both may leech into your juice but not in significant amounts and it's just a bit of juice not 5 gallons you "flavored". I don't think it would be harmful to vape a small amount of that, it's more a question of if you can get through the taste.

    Try to spill it into a bourbon barrel next time to see if that improves the taste.

    I would be more worried about the chemicals they use to machine and make your deck/coil/atomizer. And the paint that's slathered on after. And the germs and bacteria that hitch a ride as your mod passes through different hands before it's boxed. One day you could wake up with Chinese Bird Flu and your toenails will have fallen off.

    Tbh that sounds like a good thing, I hate cutting toenails. Which manufacturer has the most bird flu again?

    I would of just wiped it up. Maybe if it was the only juice I had left, and couldnt get anymore for a week, I might of thought about it, but most of us have plenty of juice around. How much spilled and how much was it? Imo, Not enough for me personally to worry about any dangerous chemicals, like varnish or paint I may be vaping.....that's just me though.

    The issue is simply personal choice .. if it were me, unless is was a very good trip, I'd ditch the liquid .. :2c:

    Pretty sure the desk is sealed up, lacquer/resin/whatnot.
    Now, unless you hadn't cleaned off the desk well in a while, who knows what was on it before your spill...

    Yeah i wasn't thinking clearly when i was putting the juice back in, that was stupid of me.
    Remaining ejuice in the bottle would have gotten me through the month,if i didn't spoil it with "bad juice".
    Now i don't have any juice left. So untill my paycheck, back to camels i guess :)

    For nic patches? No, they are more expensive than ejuice in Turkey.
    Can't really afford it with current currency rate.

    Oh, you live in Turkey. Our convenience stores here in the states sell cheap ejuice.

    In that case, I wood vape it.
