    Dropper Bottles

    Hi All,

    Could someone tell me if you can reuse PE dropper bottles, after washing them out with some hot water or should you use a brand new one each time you make up a different flavoured e-juice?

    Kind Regards,
    Cabbie

    i wash them in water them soak them in vinegar and warm water for 24 hours to get rid of the smell of the previous juice or flavour - then rinse in water and dry

    you can get 2 litres of vinegar from supermarkets for just over a dollar

    careful with hot water - i shriveled up 10 perfectly good pet bottles with that stuff lol

    All I do is rinse them under hot water for a few mins. I'm very impatient though.

    One of Spuds posts taken from another thread...

    "Warm water washing is good, for really strong flavours like some of the coffee ones, soak your gear in bi-carb solution overnight. I use 1 teaspoon bi-carb soda, (cheap and you can buy it at any supermarket in the baking section), in 500ml of warm water. Rinse them out thoroughly the next day, and no residual smells Works for clearos, tanks, drip tips etc, that have residual smell from strong juice flavours, just make sure you rinse in off in clean water before using them again."

    Maybe give that a shot.

    Vinegar smell doesn't last. It just helps get rid of the old smell easier.

    Should qualify this and say white vinegar. And smell dissipates.
