    How to clean the ceramic cups in a Rose V2

    After only a week or so of vaping the ceramic cup of the Rose looks black & gunky. I soaked the ceramic in hot soapy water for a few hours & tried to clean it with a tooth brush but the ceramic still looks badly stained.
    Does anyone know how to clean these? I'm now using the atty without the ceramic cup & it seems to vape just the same so unless I can get the cups clean I don't think I want to use them. My Rose is a clone.

    As Baz said, proper ceramic cups you blast them with a blow torch and they come back to as new.

    Although being a clone they could be made of asbestos for all you know

    I thought I'd give this torching idea a go. This is the before and after of a ceramic from a Sophia. I can't say for rodbam's ceramic, but I think you'd say it was quite successful with mine

    More or less what you expect from a proper ceramic.

    I'm curious if the knockoff melts\burns\disintegrates or others.

    I've read where the ceramic cups can split in two when torched, I don't know if they were clones or not but I will give it a go. I tend to trust the stainless steel from China but things like ceramics & plastics makes me wonder.
    I will put the wide angle lens on my camera so I can show you all the bits after I torch the ceramic.

    Well I should apologise to the Chinese for doubting their ceramic cups as they seem to be..................well ceramic.
    It cleaned up really well with the blow torch & stayed in one piece & that's after dropping it when it fell out of the tweezers while I was torching it.
