How to Clean an Atomizer: 7 Helpful Tips

Vaporizers are more popular than ever. And in order for a vape to work properly, the atomizer needs to receive proper care and cleaning.

Many people don't realize that an atomizer is the part of the device that produces mist from the e-liquid. So you can see how important it is to learn how to clean an atomizer for the best vaping experience.

Let's take a look at some ways for cleaning an atomizer you might not be aware of.

How to Clean an Atomizer: 7 Helpful Tips

Cleaning your atomizer helps to prevent stale flavors and prolong the life of the vaporizer. Here's a guide on how to clean an atomizer the right way.

1. The Paperclip Method

This is an easy way to clean the tight airflow slots in your atomizer. Simple unfold a paper clip and use it to scrape or dislodge residue and other gunk that has accumulated in the airflow channels.

Once you've managed to loosen the residue, wrap the paperclip in some damp tissue to scrub out the hard to reach bits.

2. Clean the Connections and Threading

Residue build up doesn't just restrict airflow, it can also be problematic to the battery current flowing to the atomizer. So you've got to keep the contacts clean. Take your vape apart, clean the threading and connections, then reassemble.

3. Soak the Atomizer

This is the best way to deep clean your atomizer so that it looks like new again. Take a bowl of isopropyl alcohol or warm soapy water and let the atomizer soak for 30 minutes.

After it has soaked, dry it with papers towels and set it aside for a few minutes to air dry. When all the nooks and crannies are thoroughly dry, it's time to reassemble your vaporizer.

4. Dry Burn the Atomizer

This a good step regardless of any other method you might use to clean your atomizer. Remove the wicking material from the atomizer, then gently dry burn the coil for a few seconds until the coil begins to glow. Repeat 2 or 3 times until the heated coil is a nice clean orange.

5. Blow Out the Atomizer

This might sound simple, because it is. Remove the atomizer and give it a good hard blow to flush out any gunk that has clogged the airflow. This obviously won't clear out anything that's burned on or really stuck, but it's a quick and easy method for getting out the loose stuff.

6. The Q-Tip Method

Dip a Q-Tip in isopropyl alcohol and swab the coil. This is effective for cleaning out the gunk that you simply cannot reach without a Q-Tip. You'll definitely want to do this when your atomizer starts to taste like burnt hotcakes.

7. Burn Off Leftover Residue

We recommend this as the final step. It helps clear out any remaining stubborn residue. Just fire up the atomizer for a few seconds to give it one last final burn, and that should do the trick.

Keeping Your Atomizer Burning Hot and Tasting Great

Learning how to clean an atomizer isn't complicated. But it's important. The more aware you are of cleaning a vape coil, the more you'll enjoy your vaporizer. Cleaning e-cig atomizers only takes a few minutes and makes a huge difference in your vaping experience.
