There’s some debate on the best cleaning solution for using on your vaporizer – Volcano or otherwise.
Good Old Hot Water – Hot water will easily remove gunk from glass and metal. However all that hot water can make for some nasty burns.
Rubbing Alcohol – Cuts right thru gunk. Gloves strongly recommended, along with ventilation and NO open flames!
Rubbing Alcohol w/Sea Salt – Same advantages and cautions as above, but with the added abrasive cleaning power of sea salt! Most effective and easiest to obtain.
Formula 420 – This is my favorite. It’s got the effectiveness of the alcohol with much more tolerable odors. It’s also got magic scrubbing abrasives. Yes, you do pay more but a little goes a long way, and frankly I think it does a better job than any of the cheaper alternatives. This was my favorite… but then I ran out of it and needed to improvise. I’m a big fan of rubbing alcohol and sea salt now. Just be sure to rinse and clean with mild soap and water as a last step.
However you decide to go about it – cleaning your vaporizer is of the utmost importance to it’s continued performance, and maximum efficiency in extracting the active ingredients.
