Summer is not far off and you can look forward to longer days, warm weather and days at the beach. What you probably don’t realize is that summer can wreak havoc on your vape. Properly storing your e-Juice in the summer is a little different, you have to protect it from heat and light or it will spoil. You may be tempted to throw it in the fridge as it will keep it cool but that is not the best solution either. Let’s have a look at how you can store e-juice properly so it doesn’t spoil.
Your e-Juice Should be in Tinted Bottles
When buying your e-juice it should be in a tinted bottle rather than in a clear bottle. Transparent bottles aren’t necessarily bad if you go through the liquid quickly but if you vape only casually and your bottle lasts you awhile then you either need to buy it in darker bottles or pour it into one. Light can damage the e-juice, so dark bottles will help protect it and you need to keep it in a cool dark place.
Keep Your e-Juice Away from the Heat
Aside from keeping your e-juice away from the light you are also going to need to keep it away from the heat as well. So don’t leave it in your car on a hot summer day, don’t leave it laying on the beach or anywhere else that can get too warm. Again you might be tempted to put it in the refrigerator but that is too cold. Find a cool dark place where you can store your bottles of e-juice, preferably out of reach of children. That will keep your e-juice well preserved and it won’t taste funny once you go to use it.
Make Sure the Bottles are Sealed
We have already covered heat and light as being damaging to your e-juice but oxygen is every bit as bad. Most e-juices contain nicotine and when nicotine is mixed with oxygen you get a reaction and it becomes cotinine. Your e-juice loses its nicotine content and it won’t be as strong as you wish it to be. Combine that with storing your e-juice in a clear bottle and the whole oxygenation process happens even faster.
Storing your bottles of e-juice in the summer can be a bit of a pain because of the long, hot days. If you want to keep your juice fresh and with the right amounts of nicotine then you need to make sure that you store it properly.
