Have you ever detected a previously used e-liquid? Perhaps you have filled in your tank with your new vape juice and then, you notice that it tastes strange? If you have experienced this problem, then you have experienced “flavor ghosting”.
Many vapers get frustrated with flavor ghosting. However, this is easily solved with some basic tips. Let’s dive in!
How do You Avoid Flavor Ghosting?
If you can taste hints of your previous e-juices, then this can spoil your vaping experience. Nonetheless, this is easily preventable through a good maintenance and some cleaning of your clearomizers and drip tip.
It’s especially unpleasant if the mixture of flavors is very different, for example, if the vaper used coffee e-liquids and after it, fruit flavors. In such an instance, the best way to avoid flavor ghosting is keeping your vaping device as clean as possible. In other words, you need to ensure that the remnants of the previously used e-liquid are thoroughly cleaned.
1) Firstly, you need some paper towels to clean each part of your clearomizers: glass tube, drip tip. It’s simple: keep it clean. It may take a while, but if you want to taste a fresh flavor without it being contaminated by a previously used one, it’s worth it. If you experience ghosting of flavor, thoroughly clean your clearomizer to wash away the traces of previous flavors.
2) Proceed to clean each part with tap water. Use hot water but not boiling water to clear each part of your clearomizers. You can also fill in the clearomizers with hot water and shake it for a while. Then, after pouring the water, proceed to dry the remaining water droplets.
3) Repeat the shaking process for a few times until the water is not cloudy anymore.
4) Leave the device and all its part to dry overnight so it will be perfectly ready in the morning.
How often should you clean it?
It depends on how often you use it. But it’s better if you aim to clean it at least once a month, unless you experience flavor ghosting, in which case, you might want to clean it up earlier. Remember that keeping your tank clean is key for a satisfying vaping experience.
As you can see, flavor ghosting is easily avoidable!
