Every product comes with instructions on how to use it and cautions regarding the safety of those products, vaping is no different. We have gathered up some of the most effective ways to store your e-liquids safely. Let’s check those out!
Keep it far away from Heat
When you are a vapor, heat is your enemy- what it does is, make your e-liquid go bad while deteriorating its chemical combinations. Also, your e-liquid can vaporize itself when it is exposed to excess heat. So, best way to extend the life of your e-juice would be to keep it away from the sun and hot places. It is recommended that cool places should be chosen for their storage as it can save the E-liquid from any kind of damage.
Steer clear of air and light
Even when humans are exposed to too much light, the UV rays that are emitted may cause serious skin damage. Similarly, when e-liquids are exposed to light, the UV rays speed up the oxidation process. Hence, it keeps stripping away nicotine from the bottle and slowly, the taste is affected as well. Experts advise that your e-liquids should be given optimum temperature that is suitable for its life.
Refrigerate and change the fate!
If you are conscious about saving your precious e-liquid bottles, you can refrigerate them for longer periods of time without sweating. But how can it prevent the e-juice from rotting? Good question! It definitely prevents bacteria from entering the liquid as it doesn’t reach to very cold temperatures.
Moreover, if you want to store up your e-juice for a very long time, you can also put your vape juice in the freezer.
Keep it away from Kids and Pets
If you live in a household where kids are roaming and pets are playing along, chances are that you will have to keep your eye open in case they discover your e-liquid bottles. You really don’t want your pet to fetch your e-liquid bottle.
Yes, it is true that the bottles are capped with child proof caps but one shouldn’t be too sure about that. Children are full of curiosities; they may be able to unfold the mysteries if they end up with an e-liquid bottle in their hands. So, let’s be on the safe side and keep it away from the reach of children.
