So we’ve clued you in on the basics of bong maintenance, and now it’s time to amplify your with a couple cleaning tips. Here’s why cleaning your vaporizer will do you good:
- Longer lifespan. Vaporizer technology has come a long way. But they’re still susceptible to the everyday wear-and-tear of anything you love and use often. You may not mind tossing and re-buying more affordable options, but the genuinely pure experience of a luxury vape will remind you that a light cleaning here and there mind-blowing milky vapor clouds your friends will be talking about for years to come.
- Maximize your supply. It’s simple: dirty chambers make for dirty draws. You invested in a vaporizer for its unmatched benefits. Now all you have to do is get rid of the excess once in a while so you can keep total control over how far your legal herb supply lasts. By reducing the amount of post-vape material latching onto each fresh packed load, you’re increasing the good stuff and minimizing the shit you didn’t want in the first place (technically speaking, you’re increasing the active ingredients while minimizing sticky unfavorable byproducts that come along with it.)
- Smooth, unstrained draws. Don’t act like you don’t know what I mean. You got lazy and all of a sudden you’re using every muscle your neck has to offer to get a decent-sized draw. Vapes--especially dry herb and liquid tank vapes--clog up just like a pipe does, so you’ll want to keep it hard-hitting with a light cleaning here and there. This will up your vape’s convenience value while you’re out and about, and honestly just stop pissing you off.
A Final Note: Keep in mind this is an electronic device! If your best judgment is screaming “don’t put that on there!” you’re probably right. All amounts of liquid should be minimal and not allowed to seep into the circuitry. Read your warranty. Complicated desktop models like the Storz & Bickel Volcano may void your warranty if you take apart your device.Most portable vapes feature an anatomy similar to the Dr. Dabber Ghost that will help you follow along with this cleaning guide:
