For many vapers, the disposal of e-juice is one of the least likable parts of the practice. Unsurprisingly, many vapers do not quite know the best ways to dispose of their e-juice once it gets too old to use. Perhaps it is important to note at this point that there is no definitive expiration date for e-liquid and that one can still use it even after it has been in use for quite some time. However, eventually one still needs to get rid of it, or maybe even to change the flavor of their vape.
Ultimately, it is not advisable to use the same e-juice over more than two years. At around this point, it is important to consider changing your e-liquid, during which event one must dispose of the one they have been using. Such old vape juice does not taste or smell all that good. While there is no ultimately agreed upon disposal method for juice, there are several generally recognized upon dos and don’ts which will ensure that the process is carried out correctly. As with the disposal of most other things, it is important that this is done as safely and with as little pollution as possible.
There are a couple of things that one must be careful not to do if they are to dispose of their e-juice safely:
- First of which is to ensure that they do to throw it down the drain. It is widely believed that this may contaminate the water and cause issues down the drainage if everybody starts throwing their e-juice down the drain.
- The second thing not to do is to throw the e-juice in the garbage can. This is perhaps the second simplest option and the most viable one for many seeing that throwing it down the drain is out of the question. However, throwing the e-juice into the garbage can would be a dangerous affair should it fall into the hands of children or others who may attempt to imbibe it, since it can be harmful, even fatal. Therefore, to avoid such an eventuality, it is important that one be careful not to throw e-juice in the garbage can.
So what is the right way to dispose of e-juice? Currently, the most viable and perhaps only safe and efficient way of getting rid of e-juice is by pouring it onto an absorbent kitty litter and placing it into a seal-able plastic bag before throwing it out. Once it has been absorbed in the kitty litter, it no longer poses a danger to children or any other members of society who may lay their hands on it later.
