You must have come across the term e-cigarettes and the e-liquid that is used in it. But have you ever wondered how you can store e-liquids? It is not complicated at all. In case you are vaping for the first time then there are some things that you need to follow. If you are storing e-cig and know very little about it then you should usually take it on the low orders. If you are incapable of storing liquids in a proper way then the liquid might become stale and you will not be able to use it anymore.
Do you have to Buy in Bulk?
You should order e-liquid in bulk only if you have proper storing facility for the bottlers. Bulk orders tend to be economical but it is also very essential to keep in mind that e-liquid do not last forever. It can be said that the shelf life of e-liquid is about two years. The liquid will be useable even after two years but it will probably lose its flavour and quality. This is the reason it is important to know the process of storing these liquids.
Light and Heat Sensitivity
If you want store e-liquids for a long time and still want it to taste fresh then you have to store them inside bottles within dark and cool room. It will be even better if you store them inside the refrigerator. The liquid tends to very sensitive to heat and light and being exposed to it the e-liquid loses its taste and quality. When it is stored in a low temperature the oxidation is slowed down and this prevents the growth of mould and bacteria. As a matter of fact all the chemical reaction inside the bottle is slowed down and this is very essential as the nicotine should be fresh for a long period of time. If you do not have a refrigerator then you can store them in basement or in the medicine cabinet. These kinds of places are dark and also cool. Also, make sure that whenever you are opening this bottle you open it indoors. This is because sunlight may at time weaken the flavour of the liquid.
Keep the Ingredients Separate
You may buy the ingredients of your e-cigarettes separately. In order to keep the ingredients fresh for a longer period of time you have to make sure that they do not get mixed till the time you are making use of it. This means that you have to store the flavour in one bottle and the base in another bottle.
For Long Term Storage
Sometimes the manufacturers of e-liquids store the product in glass bottles and at other times they store it in plastic bottles. It is better to choose dark glass bottles if you want to store it for a long period of time. This is because dark bottles are known to prevent light from passing through the liquid which in turn will keep it fresh. For short term plastic can be used but not for long term. Before storing it you should make sure that air doesn’t get trapped inside it.
