    just had a bowl of black tuna. After a long strech of using a vape, the feeling of resiny lips is a deja vu.

Anyone got some great ways to clean the Iolite hand held vaporizer? I find the bowl gets really packed with plant matter after a few uses and its hard to scrape out with the screen in there. I've taken it all apart and soaked it for a few days and it still does not come clean. Anyone find a great way to clean theirs effectively?

Alcohol or Cooking oil ( as thc is fat soluable )on a Q-tip should work just fine. Put the pieces in hot water before if your really serious about getting it clean. Put them in hot water again to make sure any alcohol residue is washed away.

I have two parts rigs and will just disassemble and let one soak in ISO-Prop alc and give them a shake now and again until I'm near needing a fresh start again.

I'll then just Q-tip the crevices, run a pipe cleaner thru the tubes, then drop all the pieces into a cup of distilled water and stir them around, then dry them out.

Works for ME !

Recently I discovered that cleaning the filling chamber and mesh screen can be done without disassembly.

 

Materials needed:

 

Household lye, NOT draino. Likely available at your local Ace Hardware

Stainless steel pot, DO NOT use aluminum!

 

Directions:

 

Unscrew the mouthpiece from the filling chamber, then remove the filling chamber from the black plastic part which attaches to the vaporizer.

 

Place the metal filling chamber in your stainless steel pot, add water to cover the filling chamber. Add 1 teaspoon of lye to the water, exercising caution as described on the lye container label.

 

Bring the water to a boil on a stove, turn off the heat and allow to sit for several minutes.

 

Rinse in cold water. Inspect the filling chamber, if you still have gummy residue in the screen, repeat the above steps.

 

Allow filling chamber to dry then reassemble your vaporizer and enjoy.

 

I have found that I no longer need to remove the screen from the filling chamber and do not risk losing associated parts.

 

Good luck.
