    Just tried cleaning out TVF8 Coil with hot water

    Just cleaned out my TVF8 coil in a sauce pan for 5 minutes in boiling water, cleaned it nicely but water still in coil got most of it out, but still a little wet, can I vape with it being a little damp?. I ve actually tried vaping with it, flavor is good but wondering about in haling water into lungs.....although probably better them buying a pckt of cancer sticks. New coils arrive tomorrow

    any thoughts and comments would be awesome....a little new to this

    Excess water should burn off really fast if you dry fire it once before putting juice in. But realistically damp coils probably arnt a big deal. They just wont soak up as much juice when you refill your tank the 1st time cause the wick will already be partially soaked in water and water will burn off really fast before any vapour gets to your lungs. No doubt there is water in Vg and Pg anyway so i wouldnt worry.

    Hold the coil so the juice/wick slots are unobstructed & put your finger over the top of the coil to seal it off, then blow through the bottom of the coil & a lot of that water will come out of the wick slots.
    Add some juice to soak the coil & repeat the above, that will bring out almost all of the water & leave you with a coil that won't taste bad when you first vape with it.

    ???

    Ever been in the bathroom? The kitchen? A sauna? If yes, you've inhaled water vapour.

    No big deal, maybe a few millilitres of steam and it's probably better for you than what's normally running through the coils, as in PG, VG, etc.

    Just make sure you don't run that coil 'damp' without it also having liquid behind it. That water will boil off real fast and there's a very real chance of burning the wicking if there's no liquid at the coil/wicking.

    I get out what I can, prime the coil with liquid and then put the coil back in and fill the tank. First few toots are steam but it starts working as it should pretty quickly. You say it's working well, then I expect all is well in your cleaned coil.

    Completly off topic - but reminded me of some things about farts

    Humans on average fart out about half a litre a day of gasses

    When you smell a fart you are also inhaling poop particles

    Technically although very harmless farting can kill - but it would take alot of doing essentially because you are breathing the oxygen out of the farts- it would take a few people farting to be able to achieve the death of someone

    Sniffing farts is good for you and can help decrease the chances of a few potential fatal maladies


    Why did I think of this?

    Cause the chances of drowning like dying from the smell of farts from the steam of the water is negligible on a boiling pot

    There is no study anywhere showing that anyone has ever died from the smell of nicotine in water vapor - for this to happen you would either have to have an allergy to water or nicotine - and since you have been smoking and prolly drinking water am assuming this is not a bother

    nicotine has alot of known health benefits - but as with farting if you overdose on inhaling its not good - but would take like alot of doing

    As to damp coils - yep its doable and water tends to burn off pretty fast


    Anyhows- carry on!

    There was a case a few years ago of a fellow in England who pulled a dutch oven on his wife and killed her. From what I recall, the oxygen was displaced under the covers and she suffocated.

    Not a nice way to go at all I'd expect.

    I'd have a damp coil before putting my hand up for a damp fart
