    Vapeking I-Mix Concentrates

    Hey Guys,

    New to DIY have made a few juices and im happy with the 20% ratio iv been mixing at.

    Just been trying to find somewhere that would let me know How many Drops per ML the Droppers on the Imix Concentrates are??

    Ive been using a new 1ml Syringe every time and its becoming costly...

    Cheers!!

    I do that with my PG/VG and Nicbase, but i noticed my Syringes smell like the flavors and was worried about Cross flavoring...

    Maybe i will write a flavor on each one and just use the same one every time for the flavor....

    Best way to find out is to drop into a 1 mL syringe until you have 1 mL, while counting the drops.
    Hold your finger over the pointy end and drip into the opening, after removing the "bung".

    Various droppers I have can range anywhere from 20 drops per mL to 80 drops per mL.
    If you put some clear sticky tape over the measurements on your syringe, you can use it over and over again.

    i usually have two bowls - one is full of warm/hot water and the other is empty

    between each flavour - i draw up warm water into syringe and squirt it out into the empty bowl - about 3 times

    then i pull the needle off the syringe and flick water out of the syringe and needle - wipe the needle with a paper towel and then use it again

    maybe someone's got a better method?

    Another tip about measuring anything.. put a piece of white paper down (or anything white really) under where you're working. It makes it so much easier to see those sometimes eensy little numbers and lines.

    I find a good soak in some warm water then a few rinses gets rid of any residual flavour left in my mixing gear. Havent noticed any cross contamination of flavours yet. Bottles, syringes, pippettes the whole deal come up like brand new.

    I soak mine in warm water after use. I gouge the major markings (1, 2, 3 etc) on the syringe with a knife very lightly then paint over it with clear nail varnish to preserve the numbering. This way you can feel them and count, handy with some of the smaller syringes.
    There's 10 types of people in this world that understand binary: those who do and those who don't.

    Warm water washing is good, for really strong flavours like some of the coffee ones, soak your gear in bi-carb solution overnight. I use 1 teaspoon bi-carb soda, (cheap and you can buy it at any supermarket in the baking section), in 500ml of warm water. Rinse them out thoroughly the next day, and no residual smells Works for clearos, tanks, drip tips etc, that have residual smell from strong juice flavours, just make sure you rinse in off in clean water before using them again.

    Also great if you have any nasty smells in your fridge, put a bowl of bi-carb in the back of the fridge, leave it for a couple of days, and the smells will be gone. for stinky shoes, half fill an old sock or panty hose foot, with bi-carb, put it in the shoes over night, and it will get rid of the stinky feet smell. If you have problems with dampness, (we used to have problems with mildew when I lived in the tropics, during the wet season), hang bi-carb filled cloth bags, or just some old socks filled with bi-carb in your cupboards, or between the towels and sheets in your linen cupboard, and leave for a month, then swap them out with fresh bi-carb, and you wont get any mildew.

    Really useful stuff bi-carb is
