    Your biggest DIY spill, that is. I don't mean dumping over your bottle of Boba's Bounty while refilling your carto. Not even your biggest one, but your most discouraging one.

    Did you back your car into the 50-gallon drum of 100% nic in your garage and have to bulldoze your house? (mods: completely joking....)

    Did you knock over the gallon jug of VG onto the new carpet?

    Did you finally come close to your all-day vape, and the cat knocked over your last .08 ml of The Magic Flavor?

    I don't have a big one yet; I have been paranoically careful, but accidents happen.

    Plano, TX biggest was spilling my first bottle of 60mls of 60mg nic all over my table (I'm the idiot that didn't put the lid back on fast enough :blush:) :( Now that just sucked! I'd only used about 3 mls of it :( I'm much more careful now lol!

    Sent from my phone that can't type for crap!

    I have not had a big spill, but I forgot to cap my diy bottle and went to put some in a carto and got a few ml of juice all over my hands

    About 6ml of Dark Vapure all over my hands and arms.

    I smelled like a strong cigar even after a shower. (Note: never use drip bottles to transfer, always use pipette...)

    Are you really looking for the biggest, as in drums or gallons of stuff? I mean, can't we just answer your question honestly as directed in the title? Don't answer that, because I'm answering anyway.

    Biggest spill was dumping over half a bottle of my new pre-mixed juice. That sucked, as I paid a premium price for that 30ml bottle. DIY, I spilled about 3 or 4 ml's of flavor after forgetting that I took the dropper tip off of it. Flavor all over my hand.

    I generally mix my DIY with the syringe by drawing it in and squirting it out into the mixing beaker several times. One time, I slipped, up-ended the beaker, and dumped 30ml of nicquid all over the desk. Luckily, I had more ingredients. I was sad tho.

    I'd love to know how much nicquid I've wasted via leaks, blowing out atties/cartos and all the other little drops here and there lol. Anyone have a 55 gallon drum??

    While filling a 30 ml bottle with 9 ml VG, the friction-fitted needle flew off the syringe due to plunger pressure. I'm now using the 'CAPS LOCK' key for the letter 'A' on my keyboard... [​IMG]

    I've knocked something over here and there but never spilled more than a few ml's. I'm usually very careful when I mix or pour or refill.

    That's a good idea.

    I didn't snap the dripper on the bottle all the way once. Spilled about 10mls of liquid but the nic level was less than 1mg per mil so no big deal.

    Sunday I opened a brand new bottle, 250 mls of PG. The door bell rang and I jerked my arm and dumped the ENTIRE bottle on my unfinished 100 year old red and white oak floors :facepalm: It was a mess! But in the end my floors LOVED the stuff :) they've been shiny and rich looking since...So it really wasn't too bad.

    I had a spasm while smelling some Almond extract that I just bought in the car. Into the carpet and some on the seats. Still smells a little but it's a nice smell, so far (6 weeks). As long as it doesn't turn rancid I should be OK or I guess I got to break out the steam cleaner.:facepalm:

    Yea PG is a great moisturizer for wood and stuff. I've used it for alot of things other than vaping. Just the other day, I was printing hundreds of pages on my printer for a project I was doing. The paper feeder roller got very dry, and wouldn't feed the paper properly. I put some PG on it, let it soak in, then wiped it off, and paper feeding worked fine right after (don't know if it would cause any long term damage on the rubber, but doubt it..)

    As far as spills, I knocked over a 250ml bottle of 24mg onto the floor. I freaked out because my dog was in the room, and come running over. My first reaction was to grab the dog to keep her from licking it because I'm sure a single lick would be lethal to her. Didn't care about the nic, that can be replaced.... she can't..

    Bumping my own topic here, with a near-miss tonight. I usually use syringes for measuring, and usually Leur-lock connections. I was making a small test batch and decided to use a 1 ml syringe, more accuracy for small amounts.

    POW, blew the needle off the syringe into the bottle as I was squirting it in. This was a regular syringe, not a Leur-lock. Not a spill technically because it was contained in the bottle. After digging around with tweezers I could retrieve it.

    Well my worse so far was, in my opinion just a noob thing...

    I was filling my carto, even before I had a clear idea of what I was doing, I filled the carto completely (first mistake), put the drip tip (2nd mistake) and blow the juice other the thread side, just a little detail that I didnt had a paper tower on that end... so... you can imagine the mess... I had overfilled my carto to make the liquid reach the limit of the the drip tip end...

    After that I learned how to refill the cartos watching some videos here and youtube :D

    Now a days I use a syringe and top off the carto twice a day w/o overfill it.

    Vaping and learning...

    I knocked over a bottle of mix that took me a looong time to get right and a couple of times I didn't put the little dripper cap on and I'm not a careless person...just happens sometimes.

    I opened my brand new bottle of Cap cola and inserted a 1 ml syringe and removed the amount I needed...went to put the dropper tip back on and hit it at an angle and dumped half the bottle all over myself, the table, and everything else inthe area :( So far though, that's been my only spill with vape related stuff.

    My worst was spilling about 5ml of 100mg nic liquid all over myself. I was worried a bit about nic poisoning, but all I got was a light buzz.... go figure. I rarely use gloves when I mix because I used to work in an ecig retail store and I was covered in nic liquid several hours a day with no ill effects so unless I get my hands on something higher than 100mg, I'm not that concerned about it.
