Storing your e-juice, AKA nicotine e-liquids doesn’t exactly require a ton of maintenance or effort, but it does involve some careful attentiveness in order to preserve it just right. What it really comes down to is properly storing your juice, so here are our expert tips to keep in mind to keep your liquids tasty and potent, without harming those carefully crafted flavors. Good e-liquid deserves the appropriate care, so take care of it to enjoy it properly!
Light & Heat Sensitive
Nicotine is sensitive to both heat and light, and if this isn’t observed when storing it, you could be damaging it and impacting its freshness. Therefore, storing it in a cool and dark place is ideal. Low temperatures allow the liquid to remain in good shape over a long period of time as they slow down the natural progression of the chemical process, and they can help to inhibit the growth of bacteria. If you are lucky enough to have a basement in your home, it is the absolute best place to store e-liquid as they’re typically chilly and dark places, and generally void of light. Think about why wine is stored in cellars. If you don’t have access to a basement, another great option for e-juice storage is inside cabinets.
Resist the Fridge
Some people opt to refrigerate their liquids or go even more extreme by freezing them. Do not do this. It’s awful for liquids, and this can really change their consistency and alter their flavors entirely. If you really cannot resist the urge to refrigerate your juice, allow it to come to room temperature before you vape it.
Future Plans: Storing Your Juice Long-Term
If you plan on storing liquids for the long term (which is surprisingly common, especially for those who find a flavor they cannot imagine living without), you definitely want to prepare a little differently than just sticking the bottles in the cabinet. Transferring the juice to airtight, tinted glass bottles is ideal, as these are designed for long term liquid preservation, enabling them to be protected from light and air.
If you vape, e-liquid is a part of your life, and you know how important it is to take care of it. Following these tips will help you to preserve your juices and get the best performance and flavor out of them, so we encourage you to take care of your juice for the best results. Vape on, friends!
