You have been excited for the next part of this tutorial, but I regret to inform you that before we teach you the actual mixing process of e-liquids, we would have to teach you about safety and hygiene first. Why you ask? Because as stated on a previous part of this tutorial, the nicotine in your e-liquid is potentially harmful in large doses, so we have to make sure that accidents will be prevented at all costs to avoid any mishaps. Also, you will be putting e-liquid into your bodies (or your friend’s body), so it has to be clean.
I am not talking about wearing a condom, you sick bastard. I am talking about getting complete safety equipment before attempting to mix e-liquid. As stated before, you’ll need the following items:
You’d look like a mad scientist on this outfit, and unless you can afford a hazmat suit, then this will do. Here are some things to remember when getting your safety gear:
Now that your safety game is on point, it’s time to proceed with the next part, cleanliness.
Your e-liquid gets evaporated when you put it on cotton and guess where it goes? Right, your body. If your local barista tells you that he boils water from a rusty old pot, would you drink that coffee? Of course not.
With all that safety gear you purchased, you should know by now that mixing e-liquid is a serious business. It is important that your mixing area is clean, free of dust, or anything that could contaminate your e-liquid.
Using a spare room that no one uses as a mixing laboratory is alright, as long as you take note of the safety of your materials. Of course, keeping them clean is very important. The place should be sanitized, well-ventilated, and of course, away from children and pets should be a top priority.
Bonus Tip: E-liquid mixing laboratories don’t have to white, but they usually are because you can easily see stray dirt and dust on a white room.
Of course, you should be clean too. Make sure to take a bath at least a few hours before you get to work and keep your hands sanitized. Rubbing a little alcohol on your hands before you get your hands dirty (ermm, I mean CLEAN) with work would be great to ensure that you wouldn’t be transporting bacteria to your final product.
Now, I’m very serious. The next part of this tutorial would be about the actual mixing process. Stay tuned!
