How to clean wax atomizer?It’s important to clean your wax atomizer regularly in order to extend its lifespan and for it to give the best possible taste! Wax is a sticky and thick substance which means residue can easily build up on the coils, eventually clogging the atomizer.
You should never clean your wax atomizer with any cleaning product you may find in your local shop as accidentally consuming even trace amounts of this can be harmful. Instead, use alcohol or hot (not boiling) water. We recommend using soft materials such as paper towels or Q-tips to avoid damaging the delicate coil if possible.
There are a few different ways to clean your wax pen, these include a simple mop down with a q-tip, an alcohol soak and burning leftover wax using the heat of the coil. Our favourite method is using a stove pre-heated to 80 - 90 Celcius: Place the mouthpiece, chamber and atomizer cover on a piece of tin foil in the stove for 5 minutes. This will melt the wax allowing it to drain out onto the foil. The vape pen pieces can then be soaked in alcohol to give it a thorough clean.
This process sounds tricky, but we assure you it’s not! This video will clear up any questions:
