    Copper mods and stopping patina

    Just wondering if anyone has some good ideas about stopping the patina of mods and attys? Was thinking about putting on some sort of clear coat but not sure since I'll be using a dripper and it will heat up a fair bit.
    If there is already a thread about this can someone point me in the right direction?

    I find when my copper starts looking a little dull I pour a little vinegar in a container and dip them all in for about 30sec to a minute and BAM. Rinse it off and your good to go.

    Either clean it on a regular basis (ie polishing) or use a wrap and are really the only two options to stop the patina. I won't go so far as say don't use it...

    You could try not touching the mods, or the attys....just throw something at it every time you want to vape and hope you inhale some of the goodness?

    Copper and Brass are going to get tarnished, its what makes them look good.

    Clean it properly, there are several options available. Spray with CRC Silicone spray, it will lubricate the threads and will help prevent the return of patina. That's worked for me ...
    Ignore the Super-moderator tag in my profile, I have resigned from that position but admin have not updated my profile as yet

    You could wear cotton gloves whilst vaping, I suppose silk gloves would work too....
