    Hey folks! I have a couple of Liquids left and I thought about mixing them up because the flavors itself are not my favorites anyways (got them as a gift for birthday). I have 3 Flavors left from here (all around 10-40% leftover) I would like to blend wich each other. Usually I put them into my cartridge. The Question is will it be a waste because it wont taste well or do I have to consider something else when blending? I went through the tutorial but I couldnĀ“t find anything about "mixing those kind of finished liquids". Anything I have to ad or leave out ?

    greetings Anna

    It's going to taste however it's going to taste - if the flavors are complementary to each other, it should be fine.

    Now, I personally have not ever gotten anything fantastic by doing this. Believe me, I gave it a shot. Your results, of course, may vary .

    There isn't much else to say, though. Your nic levels are going to average between the two juices you mix (if they're the same nic level, nevermind, it'll remain there) - in other words, if you mix 5ml of 12 mg and 5ml of 6, you'll get something around 9mg nic. But there's no trick, no secret bonding additive or anything like that. Juice is juice, and juice from one bottle will mix with juice from another bottle. The flavors may not, but chemically it should be fine.

    I mix all the time.

    I also have so many 15ml samples that I either end up mixing them in with other flavors when they get lower and diluting with VG, or just diluting the 15ml 50/50 VG/PG samples with 15ml of VG.

    It haven't gotten a bad vape from doing it yet.

    If only I could figure out something to do with that damned chai tea juice I got though. That's the only one that hasn't mixed with anything or vaped well on its own.

    Nice to know that it is OK to mix different juices. Maybe you'll come up with a new flavor!

    The only downside is it's like playing Russian roulette. You may get some that are ok or good, but you may get some bad results. If you get one that is beyond excellent it may be hard to recreate.

    True that!

    It's happened to me on more than one occasion.

    Don't know what topper your using but I have had good results mixing by drop in a RDA. Suggest you do the same.

    Back when I used tanks, I would let what was left in the tank drip into a bottle before putting in a new flavor.
    Ended up with 10ml of liquid accumulated from combining 1/4ml and less of tank leftovers over a 3 month period.

    Buddy of mine called it "trash can"
    Did vape it a few times, tasted unique and unusual to say the least.

    Still have it sitting in my closet. Haven't touched it in over a year.

    I mix stuff all the time, mostly because I always seem to be running out of bottles for new stuff. I peel off the sticker and add it to the bottle I'm pouring into, just so I know what's in the bottle should I accidentally discover an awesome combination. So far, no awsomeness has come from it though. A lot of it ends up down the drain. :)

    I used to do something similar to @zaroba when I was vaping premixed. You know how there's always that little bit of liquid left in a finished bottle? I would turn my empties upside down on top of a 250 ml bottle and let them sit there for a day until every last drop dripped out. After a few months I had like 30 mls of trash juice in that bottle. Amazing how fast it adds up. Well, I vaped it and passed it around to anyone who would try it and it was actually pretty...good. I thought it would taste like pure shit, but it was totally vapeable. Nothing identifiable flavor wise, but it was very interesting.

    Now I'm going to do that with my DIY stuff. Anything that would go down the drain is going into a trash bottle instead. I can't imagine it tasting like anything but pure shit, but at least it'll give me an idea of how much I'm throwing away.

    If your diying then it shouldn't matter you should be paying less than $1 a50 ml bottles so why do it. Your just being cheap. Throw it away and make something new.
    My own personal opinion people!

    If they are of the pg/vg ratio and of the same nic level, they will remain the same.
    Just consider that mixing a few e-liquids you don't like in the first place, will most most likely result in a lot of e-liquid you won't like even more.

    For last 3 days I have been dripping "dump stuff " that has been slowly accumulated in 30ml bottle for last several months. It is a combo of creams, fruits, custards, and flowers ( honey suckle, rose, cherry blossom) with hints of cognac, bourbon, rum and pink champagne.
    I wish that I can recreate it. Have over 1000ml of juice in steep but I am mesmerized by my ex "garbage".
