    Lol, I rinse them every day and give them a bubble bath once a week.
    PS, Doggie I forgot to give you the little drip tip brushes - I had them with me in Melb! I will post them - should only take a month :blush:

    I use Teflon drip tips so they never need cleaning of lip gunk. Sometimes I get a spit of juice right through the drip tip, then I'll just run a little water through the tip to clear the excess, and vape on.

    Was tempted to choose "manky" or "don't understand", but settled on "Aqua's dog" (mostly cos I like dogs).

    I generally use a drip tip on an atty and when the coil has gone retire it at the same time.
    I have on occasion noticed something I didn't like and then either changed it or cleaned it if the coil was still ok.

    I put used attys in a glad wrap bag and when it's required strip them all down completely and wash them.
    This has backfired on occasion when I've struggled to remember which part of a seemingly hundred bits goes with what atty.

    Used to do this in the laundry trough until I lost a couple of o rings down the drain so I now use a big plastic container with some warm water and a couple of drops of washing up liquid.
    Added bonus of it can be completed in front of the tv!

    Bit off subject but related and does cover drip tip cleanliness?

    I ticked two.

    When they look manky and monthly as it was the closest to the truth.
    Probably when they look manky and fortnightly would have been nearer.

    Should have kept it simple but if you ever start a thread on washing attys I've already started it off!

    Perhaps there was some method to my rambling.

    I wash them once, when I get them in newly opened vape mail. I may rinse them after that (mostly I don't unless there's a lot of condensation in the DT) but usually I just wipe them with a vaper towel & a drop of juice, coz PG & nic kill germs.
