When you purchase e-liquid for your e-cigs, you have to be careful about where you store it for it to keep tasting fresh and to last a long time. Often, you can save money by buying your e-cig liquid in bulk, but you’ll only make the most of the bargain if you know how to properly store your e-liquid. This article will offer some practical tips, such as where to keep e-liquid, what temperature to keep it at and how long it should last.
Will Electronic Cigarette Liquid Last Forever?
It is possible to order electronic cigarette liquid in bulk, store it somewhere and use it over the long term. While this might be an economical option, remember that the liquid doesn’t last forever. The accepted industry consensus on the shelf life of electronic cigarette liquid is two years. After this, you might find that the e-cig liquid is fine but you might also find that it has degraded in flavor and quality.
Sensitive to Heat and Light
The key to keeping your electronic cigarette tasting like new and doing the trick is to keep your e-liquid fresh. The liquid, like most perishable items, is sensitive in heat and light and stays freshest in dark and cool areas. Store your e-liquid in a cool and dark place such as in a refrigerator.
When your e-liquid is exposed to heat and light, it can suffer from massive degradation, which means that it will become susceptible to microorganisms. This can cause the flavor to become dull or distorted.
Keeping It Away From Children
When you are storing your electronic cigarette liquid, it is also important that you keep it away from any young children. A young child will not know what electronic cigarette liquid is and might try to drink the liquid, which can be very dangerous.
If you have small children, keep the e-cig liquid in a cupboard high above their reach. You might want to keep the liquid in a medicine cabinet along with other items that are not child-safe. If you don’t have a cabinet that is high enough, you should keep your e-cig liquid in a cabinet that has a lock.
If you have older children that will be able to find the electronic cigarette liquid, you should talk to them about it and explain it to them. They might find a glass bottle of liquid in the fridge and think they can drink it, so make sure your liquid is always clearly labeled and that your children understand what it is.
If you are storing your electronic cigarette liquid for a longer period of time, you can even store it in the freezer. The liquid lasts longer if you can store them in glass bottles, so place them in a glass bottle and allow a little bit of space for air at the top of the liquid itself. Don’t use a plastic bottle for storing electronic cigarette liquid; the plastic will have an effect on the constitution of the liquid and will change it. The very best type of bottle to use is an amber-glass bottle, because the colored glass will block out light.
Then, place the glass bottles into two separate plastic zipper bags, one inside the other. This will ensure that no air can escape. Place them in a freezer, making sure that they are in a protected space so that they will not get broken or crushed by other freezer items.
These are just a few important tips to keep in mind when you are storing your electronic cigarette liquid so that you can keep it tasting fresher for longer.
