Extend the longevity of your prebuilt coils by following this simple cleaning regimen. In 5 minutes or less, you can have your #CoilArt looking new again.
If you’ve invested money in a nice pair of handmade coils, keeping them in tip-top shape should be a priority. Visually inspecting your coils on a regular basis, both before and after use, can lead to a better overall vaping experience.
Know When Your Coils Are Dirty
The follow indicators can be used when deciding to clean:
- A decrease in flavor
- A decrease in cloud production
- Abnormal popping noise while vaping
- Dull color
- Discolored cotton
- Uneven glowing
NOTE: Vaping sugary e-juices on a regular basis will increase the need for cleaning.
Clean Running Water
When cleaning coils of any kind, a steady stream of clean luke warm tap water is required. If you can’t get warm water, cold will do just fine.

Step 1 – Pulse | Rinse | Repeat
Cleaning is essentially a one step process. It calls for applying heat at a low wattage (40-50 wattage, or short pulses on a unregulated mod) until the coils are glowing, running under warm water, and repeating. The quick change in temperature along with a little pressure from the running water, will help to loosen and remove build up (aka “gunk”) on your coils.
NOTE: Uneven glowing is a sign that your coils need more cleaning!
The coils above still need a little work, but they are very close; one more rinse, and they’ll be good to go.
After you’ve finished, your #CoilArt should be glowing nice and evenly. Don’t expect the coils to shine like new; instead, look for a cleaned metal appearance.
Once you’ve established a cleaning routine, you should be able to clean 2-4 builds in about 5 minutes or so. If properly taken care of, a pair of good handmade coils will provide months of vaping!
