dealing with vape residue by Sophie Smallcocke - Mon, 29 Jan 2018 03:25:38 EST ID:AJXQwxD4 No.3806 Ignore Report Quick Reply

since PG and VG are both effectively non-volatile, for every mL you vape, a mL of juice is deposited on your walls, ceiling, floor, windows, etc.

if it were water, it would evaporate, but PG and VG don't evaporate. what is a good solution to this problem? how do you prevent a fine layer of residue from accumulating on every surface around where you vape?

I am especially concerned about being near a computer, because the residue will attract dust easily, as well as water because PG and VG are hygroscopic.

An obvious solution is to vape outside, or through a window, but that's sometimes impractical. Could you construct some sort of device, some filter to absorb most of the vapor you breathe out?

Well. i largely gave up sub-ohm vaping and producing large clouds of vapour. I almost exclusively use mtl devices like kayfun clones. I go through about 2ml of juice per day....which means its cheaper than chasing clouds and that I fart more residue in a 24hr period than i vape

This has become a serious problem for me. I used to notice the residue collecting on my walls, windows, etc. and I really didn't give a fuck. HOWEVER, over the last year I have realized this shit is collecting inside my PC.

It gets really bad. Its the exact same residue that is on my windows. Here's a picture of my case fans after not being cleaned for a month or two. So much collected on my case panels and dust shields that it was dripping down and pooling at the bottom of my case. This stuff isn't conductive itself but it attracts water so this is a huge concern for me. I'm not really sure what to do other than crack my window and keep air circulating (and regularly clean my rig) because I vape all day while I sit here doing homework and whatnot.

My friends who constantly vape around their PC's have had similar issues. Just something to be aware of, especially for anybody that doesn't have a clear side panel. Crack your case open once in a while and wipe it down if you see this shit inside.

i was thinking of making (or buying) some sort of filter device to blow through. simplest form would be tubing with a filter that you blow through but a cooler version would be using a fan on one side that would draw the vape through. I just can't think of what kind of filtration would be effective

Holy shit I never considered this, just came back to this website for the first time in 5 years, and was about to leave when I checked this board.

I have 3 1070tis in an open air rack for mining.

God fucking bless you, Sophie Smallcocke. Absolutely going to stop vaping near my hardware.

You just saved me literal thousands of dollars down the line.

for weed people use smoke buddies/sploofys, it's basically a tube with activated carbon inside, and the air you blow through it is scrubbed clean more or less.

you can make yourself one with activated carbon from a pet store and a toilet roll or pvc piping or something
