A Step-By-Step Guide to Cleaning Your Vape

Keeping your vape in tip-top shape usually requires only changing your coil or replacing your pod. However, there are circumstances where you need to deep clean your vape, such as when you’re planning to try a mod you haven’t used in a while, rediscovering an old favourite tank, or putting your favourite kit through the wars.

Let’s help you give your vape the attention and care it needs. In this article, we summed up all that you need to follow to get your vape looking and feeling like new again. Read the information below to learn more about maintaining and cleaning your vape.

Vape mod

To maintain your vape mod in good condition, catch any leaks on your tank when refilling before they reach the mod, especially if you’ve recently installed a new coil. Aside from keeping your vape mod clean, this also helps avoid causing an e-liquid leak that can damage the circuitry of your mod. Also, bear in mind that the mod is an electrical item, so never wash it.

Here are the steps to maintaining the cleanliness of your mod:

  1. Detach removable parts, including batteries, battery doors, the tank, and any covers or cases.

  2. Inspect the replaceable batteries of your mod and make sure they are free from scratches or tears in the wrap. Replace damaged batteries immediately.

  3. Remove any visible debris-like lint. 

  4. Wipe the entire mod with a dry paper towel and use a cotton bud to wipe its nooks and crannies, such as the areas inside the connection pin and around the charging port.

Vape tank

Your vape tank plays a major role in the flavour, which is why this has to be kept clean. To do this, you need to deep clean your tank every few weeks, most especially when the flavour weakens or the coil changes colour.

It’s also important to wash your vape tank when you are switching between two dramatically different vape flavours to get rid of the weird aftertaste. Some particularly strongly flavoured e-liquids tend to stick to the tank. 

If this is your first time disassembling a vape tank, we recommend you to check your manual. You may also turn to us, a vape shop in Welling, to guide you in cleaning your vape tank thoroughly.

To conduct a thorough tank cleaning, follow the steps below:

  1. Detach your tank from the rest of the device, then disassemble your tank into as many small parts as you can. These include the bottom cap, drip tip or mouthpiece, glass tube,

the top cap, and any chimney or extension pieces. For old or burned out coils, it’s best to dispose of them instead of washing them clean.

  1. Place all of the components in a heatproof bowl or cup.

  2. Pour warm water over the tank pieces. Make sure that the water is not too hot to avoid damaging the bank. 

  3. Allow the pieces to sit for a few minutes to dissolve away any e-liquid residue, dust, and dirt.

  4. Dab some standard washing up liquid on stubborn bits of residue on the tank. Lather then rinse the tank under running water for at least two minutes.

  5. Dry the pieces thoroughly with a clean paper towel.

  6. Wipe the pin.

  7. Reassemble the parts.

Vape pod mod

The rise of pods with replaceable coils made pod kits and tank kits undistinguishable. However, the chamber that holds the e-liquid is common to all pod mods.

To know more about cleaning your vape pod mod, follow the instructions below:

  1. Remove the pod from your device. 

  2. Use a paper towel to remove any drops of e-liquid that may have leaked onto the pod or the mod.

  3. Gently sweep around the connection pins with a cotton bud to get rid of any e-liquid or dust.

  4. Clean the airflow points.


A thorough cleaning makes a dramatic difference to the flavour, cloud production, and overall performance of your vape, making your experience even more enjoyable.
