    Getting Rid Of That Plastic Taste/Smell

    Got a couple of Kanger Dripbox 160's and just can't seem to get rid of that plastic smell/taste.

    I'd hoped a couple of bottles of juice would have got rid of it but no luck.

    It's like the smell of the plastic bag the unit came in has impregnated itself into everything.

    I've washed everything I can a couple of times and still there. Soaked in Vodka for two days, still there.

    Am I gunna have to buy an Ultrasonic Cleaner? That possibly solves part of the problem.

    Then there's the squonking pin in the unit. It doesn't seem to be removable.

    Hot water, vinegar and bicarb.

    Dumb question.

    Boiling water from the jug and what sort of mix of vinegar and bicarb?

    Not boiling, that'll stuff o-rings and crack plastic. Hot out of the tap. Half a bowl, put the gear in that, add a couple of teaspoons of bicarb. Slowly pour on the vinegar, you'll see the reaction. Stir it up and add some more and keep doing so 'til the bicarb disappears and it's all just bubbling like lemonade. Leave it overnight. Should do the trick. If not, repeat. If still no good, chuck the tank away!
