If you’ve bought any of our handmade Ed’s TnT wooden vaporizer parts, you will eventually have to clean them. Unlike glass or stainless steel parts, wooden components cannot be submerged or soaked for cleaning and any moisture should be kept to an absolute minimum. So, what do you do when the wood starts to collect residue build up that begins to affect the taste and smell of your vapour?
The following cleaning guide can be applied to any of the wooden parts and accessories we stock.
What You’ll Need:
- Isopropyl alcohol (available from hardware stores)
- Cotton swabs
- Soft cleaning brush
- Pipecleaners (optional)
- 1. Grab the part(s) you wish to clean and gently brush out any loose debris using a soft cleaning brush. You can also blow or use a can of compressed air to dislodge any particles.
- 2. Dip a cotton bud in isopropyl alcohol and gently squeeze out the excess. The cotton bud should be damp, not soaked.
- 3. Gently scrub the inside of the part with the cotton swab. Pipe cleaners may help with hard to reach areas or small openings.
- 4. Isopropyl alcohol is very effective at breaking down dirt build-up and resin, but tougher spots may need a bit more time and effort. If you encounter tough build up, you can gently scrub using a cleaning brush or bristled pipe cleaner dampened with a small amount of alcohol.
- 5. Once your part is clean, leave it to dry completely before use. This is important, as inhaling from a wooden part before all the alcohol has evaporated will yield some bad tasting vapour!
