How To Clean a Volcano Vaporizer
The Volcano is arguably the most popular and widely used vaporizer on the market. Whether you choose the classic, or the newer digital model you’re sure to get countless years of enjoyment from it. But like all vaporizers, the Volcano needs a good cleaning once in a while to preserve its pristine appearance. Allowing resin to build up may hinder its ability to produce a smooth, consistent vape.
Warning: never use bleach or any other chemical-based product on your Volcano.
I’m sure this is common sense to most people, but it’s still worth saying. Cleaning your vaporizer with heavy chemical-based products may leave residue behind, which you’ll end up breathing in when you use your device. Only use natural, organic cleaners to ensure your device is safe to use in the future.
Cleaning The Base
If the base of your Volcano Vaporizer is dirty, clean it using a damp washcloth with a single drop of mild dish soap. The base is easiest piece to clean, as there’s no need to disassemble any of the parts. Just scrub the side down with a damp (not soaked) washcloth.
When you are finished, go back over it with another dry washcloth to absorb any excess moisture. Although it’s safe, rubbing alcohol residue may leave behind an unpleasant taste on your Volcano. Thankfully, rinsing the pieces with water should prevent this from happening.
Cleaning The Valve, and Mouthpiece
After dissembling the valve and mouthpiece from your Volcano Vaporizer, let them soak in a solution of warm water and mild dish soap for 20-30 minutes. This should be more than enough time to loosen up any stubborn resin left behind. Because these pieces are so small, it’s best to use an old toothbrush to scrub them. Simply scrub any resinated areas and dip the pieces back into the soapy water.
If soapy water isn’t doing the job, you may need to step up your efforts by using rubbing alcohol. Don’t worry, rubbing alcohol is completely safe to use on vaporizers and should cause no reason for concern. When you are finished, rinse the pieces back off with plain water before reassembling them.
Another helpful cleaning tool that Volcano owners should invest in is a box of Q-tips. These will prove incredibly useful for swapping resin out of those hard-to-reach areas.
The Volcano is one of the world’s most popular desktop vaporizers, and for good reason: it heats up in just seconds, offers a reliable and accurate temperature, and creates a huge plum of thick vapor.
