A Beginner's Guide to Cleaning Vape Tanks

For any vaper, there is a set of golden rules to follow no matter what setup they’re rocking or the purpose of their vaping. 

Over the past few years alone, plenty of rules, such as “don’t suck in too much vapour” or “invest in an original, authentic mod,” have become commonplace. While each rule definitely has its own merit and significance, there’s one that stands out above all else: Clean your tank as often as you need to.

Why a clean tank is always going to be a good tank

Now, while it may sound quite mundane in comparison to learning how to blow better o-rings or having better e-juice flavours, learning how to clean your vape tank still sits at the top of the hierarchy of essential vaping information.

You see, your tank (aside from your mod and juice) acts as the bridge between yourself and the main reason you enjoy vaping in the first place. If you want to keep your rig working as well as it should, then it’s definitely worth noting that proper tank cleaning goes hand in hand with longevity.

Fortunately, cleaning your tank and making sure that it stays in tip-top shape all year-round isn’t necessarily a tiresome endeavour. It won’t take more than 30 minutes or so every three or four weeks. 

A step-by-step guide that any vaper can follow

Looking to maximise the lifespan of your tanks by a longshot and enjoy those sweet, full clouds that you always look forward to? Here’s everything you need to know about keeping your premium piece in peng condition: 

Step #1: Empty it all out

Just like any thorough cleaning, giving your tank some much-needed TLC needs to start off by emptying it out. Generally, the best way to do that is to vape it away until there’s almost nothing left—and then proceed to dispose of the remaining liquid in an appropriate container.

Step #2: Take it apart and rinse everything with warm water

Now that you’ve got your e-liquid out of the way, the next step is to take your tank apart and rinse every juice-soaked component with warm water. 

Depending on the design, the disassembly process begins by unscrewing the top or bottom of your tank and carries over to your drip tip, O-ring, glass section, and the coil itself. Now that you’ve got the parts all sorted out, you need to thoroughly rinse your components in a tub of warm water and let everything dry properly with a proper wipe and an airing session after.

Step #3: Clean the threading

Apart from the components in the tank itself, another part of the entire setup that needs a proper clean is the threading inside. It tends to hold extra build-up and muck. With a Q-tip dipped in warm water or alcohol, give the threads a deep clean and make sure that no spot goes without having a proper rub.


If you want to ensure the quality of your vaping experience and that everything goes the way it should, then it’s vital that you clean your vape tanks regularly. Just follow our guide above—it’s easy to do and won’t take up so much of your time.
