    Is it OK to use white vinegar to clean my coils for my Kanger mini tank?

    If they are premade coils then there is no cleaning them. once cotton is burnt it can't be unburnt
    If you built the coils, you can remove the cottton, dry burn, rinse with water, then add new cotton.
    cotton can't be cleaned, only the metal can

    Factory coils are designed and made to be disposable, cotton breaks down, burnt, etc. Trying to clean factory coils is an exercise in futility.

    But vinegar can be used to clean the tank and it's internal parts, I myself use and ultrasonic. Before that I used 100 proof Vodka and Everclear, never ever use rubbing alcohol for it's toxic.

    But back to the subject of coils, no you can't clean and reuse factory coils to make them "new" again, it's pointless.

    I've used one for week, soaked it in vodka, blown it out, and reused it later for another week. Really wasn't worth the time, or the vodka, lol.

    I've also cleaned factory could just by running them under hot water and drying them. It does work as long as you don't burn the cotton. After cleaning, I've only been able to get another couple days out if them, so I don't really think it's worth it.

    As the others have already said ... it's not worth the hassle of trying. I've got this tank also and a few more that are "purchase" coil tanks. I've given up on them and have upgraded to tanks that I can build coils for. I got tired of spending $$$ on expensive coils when they only last a week or two each. Yes, you can purchase a 5 pack of coils for your tank, but when you have three people vaping in your family and running a minimum of three tanks, it gets expensive really quick.

    Rebuildable all the way for me... and DIY juice.

    You know, if you are going to go through all the bullS of trying to clean a factory coil... wouldn't it be much easier to just use the RBA mini that probably came with the tank?
