So you are like many vape enthusiasts and have found yourself in a sticky situation trying to clean up e-liquid that has either gotten on your box mod (yes, some tend to overfill) or you’ve spilled vape juice on a counter, car seat, desk or other surface that needs to be cleaned. Welcome to the club!
First and foremost, paper towels are your friend and disposable gloves (latex, etc.) are a cheap and valuable investment. Pop on some gloves and wipe the surface down with paper towels to remove any excess liquid.
After excess e-liquid has been wiped clean, depending on the surface material, proceed with a fresh paper towel that’s slightly damp. Many times water is all that’s needed. If not, on to the next step.
If a damp paper towel wasn’t enough to get the job done, you’ll need to use some sort of cleaner to remove sticky vape juice residue and the cleaner you use must be appropriate for the surface you’re cleaning. Don’t go dousing your car seats with bleach or other harsh chemicals, and go for the least abrasive solution first. Isopropyl alcohol and popular gum/tar removers work well.
Lastly, if you want to avoid e-juice catastrophes altogether, consider moving towards a pod mod system that uses replaceable pods instead of tanks that need to be refilled. This way there’s no chance of spills and subsequent headaches.
