    Kayfun Cleaning,,,,, how to ?

    Hi Guys,
    Have ordered a Kayfun and a Russian.(hopefully in the next couple of days they will arrive).
    I have been told before use to thoroughly wash & clean them. Ok, i totally agree, but i don't know what to clean them with.
    Any help of course, i would really appreciate it cause these are my first rebuildables which i will be using on my Provari and i don't want to screw up from the start. (i'll screw up later when i start to learn how to make coils !!! lol )
    Thanks,
    AL

    I like to clean them by puffing through a few tanks of my favorite e-liquid....

    others use a bath of warm soapy water (this is likely better than my method)

    This is what I do with my KF atties when I first get them:

    • Break it down and remove all of the o-rings.
    • Put the atomizer parts in a big plastic bowl and throw in some dish soap and bicarb soda.
    • Add hot water and let it soak for a few hours-overnight.
    • Rinse with hot water very thoroughly to make sure all the soap and bicarb is out of the nooks and crannies.
    • Replace the o-rings, whack a coil in there, fill her up and vape!

    Thanks guys,
    i've been told there is a lot of crap in them , probably from the machinig etc, so just a good bubble bath in hot soapy water should do the trick.
    cheers

    I've tried soapy water and found it didn't really do much (if you shove a q-tip up the neck or drip tip it will still come out filthy). Now I just fill the sink with water and vinegar and use a q-tip to actually clean it. The other benefit is that you aren't waiting a few hours/overnight before you can use it.

    Vodka works really well as a cleaner, but it's too expensive for me to use as a cleaning agent (and has a much better purpose). Vinegar works just as well in my experience.

    Clones or originals? Originals should not really require much of a clean apart from maybe a quick water rinse.

    I brush the airholes and fill ports with a dental brush and dish liquid, and then rinse with warm water.

    Pull RBA appart and take the orings off.
    Put all the parts in a strainer. Just makes it easier so I don't drop anything down the sink accidentally.
    Put the strainer in a big bowl of some kind and put the bowl in the laundry sink.
    Pour in some wax and grease remover. Degreaser, Thinners, WD40, Alcohol or something like that will work as well.
    Get an old toothbrush and give all the parts a good scrub and blow through any air holes to make sure you have got any gunk out of hidden cavities.
    When your happy all the grease/oil is gone lift the strainer and empty the bowl.
    Then fill with hot water and clean/scub the parts and the strainer again.
    Lift the strainer and empty the bowl.
    Then fill with hot water and detergent.
    Clean/scrub the parts and the strainer again.
    Then give it all one final rinse with hot water and dry on paper towel.
    This is probably a bit over the top but your RBA will be completely clean and ready to use.
    Whole process takes 5-10 minutes.
