Thoroughly cleaning your dry herb vaporizer is essential if you want to get a premium vaping experience every time you use it. After all, you invest a lot of money in your vaporizers and your dry herbs, why wouldn’t you want to have a premium vaping experience every time you use it?
In the following article, we will be taking a closer look at how to clean your dry herb vaporizer effectively and thoroughly in five simple steps. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner just getting started with your dry herb vaporizer or an experienced vapor. You’re sure to find the article useful.
For the first step in the cleaning process, you’re going to need a small bottle brush. Use the small brush and give the entire herb chamber a thorough scrub to remove any herb residue that may be stuck inside the chamber. The oven or chamber is always a little easier to clean if it has just been used and is still warm to the touch. Not too hot, though! Or you may burn yourself.
Take a cotton tip and soak it in isopropyl alcohol. Now, wipe around the inside of the oven or chamber and remove any stubborn oil or resin that may have built-up there. Once it has all been cleaned and everything is clean, take a fresh cotton bud and remove any excess alcohol.
It’s essential that you don’t use too much isopropyl alcohol as you don’t want it to drip down into the electrical components on your vaporizer. Please turn on the vaporizer once you have removed any excess isopropyl alcohol and allow it to warm up and dry completely before you use it again.
Regardless of whether or not you are the only one using your dry herb vaporizer, the inside and outside of the mouthpiece must be cleaned regularly. When you clean the inside of the mouthpiece, you’ll be preventing any gunk or rubbish building up, and you will be able to inhale thought it more easily. The last thing you want is gunk getting into your mouth when you vape. It will also prevent any harmful bacteria or germs from building up in your mouthpiece.
Almost all dry herb vaporizers have removable mouthpieces that are designed to make them easy to clean. You can soak your mouthpiece in isopropyl alcohol or hot soapy water. Whatever you choose to soak it in, always rinse it thoroughly and allow it to dry before using it again.
If your mouthpiece has any rubber or silicone seals or gaskets, don’t soak them in isopropyl alcohol as it can cause the rubber or silicone to deteriorate. Washing them in warm water by hand is the best option. If you can’t remove your mouthpiece, you’ll need to wash or swab it out with isopropyl wipes or a cotton bud.
Almost all dry herb vaporizers have screens or filters which are designed to be removed for easy cleaning. When you’re using ground dry herbs, the filters or screens can quickly get clogged up with residue and resin. You can either soak the filters or screens in isopropyl alcohol or scrub them in hot soapy water.
Some screens will be replaceable. This means that if you choose, you can throw them away and use a new screen or filter every time that you need to clean them rather than washing them, but be aware that this may require spending quite a lot of money on screens over the life of your vaporizer.
Allow time for the screens to thoroughly dry before loading them back into the dry herb vaporizer, or they’ll get blocked up quickly.
The next thing that we’re going to focus on cleaning is the air path or vapor path of your dry herb vaporizer. The vapor you inhale moves from the chamber or oven through the vapor path and into the mouthpiece where it’s inhaled. You don’t need to clean the air path before the chamber, only after the chamber between the oven and the mouthpiece.
Some dry herb vaporizers have air paths that can be easily removed and cleaned, however others you can only swab out with a cotton tip as they aren’t removable. Soak the cotton tip in isopropyl alcohol and gently swab out the air path. Use a dry cotton tip to remove any excess isopropyl alcohol before allowing it to dry. You may need to repeat the process several times until it is thoroughly clean.
Once everything is cleaned thoroughly and reassembled, it’s time to burn off any excess cleaning solution that may be leftover. This is to ensure that you don’t inhale any of the isopropyl alcohol that was used during the cleaning process.
This part is easy to do by merely turning on your dry herb vaporizer and allowing it to run through a complete heat-up and cool-down cycle. It’s best to do this step without any dry herbs in the chamber. Once it has run through a complete cycle, it will be ready to use again and nice and clean.
It only takes a few minutes to effectively clean your dry herb vaporizer if you take the time to clean it regularly. The longer you leave it between cleaning, the harder it will be to clean, and the longer it will take. Regular preventive maintenance and cleaning mean that you’re going to have a better vaping experience. After all, you invest a lot of money in your dry herb vaporizer and dry herbs, so having a premium vaping experience is worth a few minutes of your time cleaning.
