Cleaning and Maintenance Guide
In today’s blog, we will be learning how to clean our CFV. Before we start we’re going to want to grab some supplies to help us maximize the lifespan of our vaporizer. Grab your Boundless brush tool (or some pipe cleaners), isopropyl alcohol, cotton swabs, paper towels (or a microfiber cloth), and any other tools we might want for cleaning.
Disassemble the CFV for Cleaning
The first thing we’ll need to do in order to clean our CFV is to disassemble it. We can do so by simply removing the mouthpiece with a twisting motion at the base and pulling it off. Just the same way we load the oven. If we haven’t cleaned our screens or replaced them in some time, now is the time.
It’s a good rule of thumb to replace them every few weeks. We don’t have any dry herb or gunk that might be left behind from our past sessions.
Brushing Out the Heating Chamber
Next we’re going to use our Boundless brush tool (or a pipe cleaner, etc.) to gently scrub the inside of the oven. We do this to remove any excess dry herb that might have been left behind. After that, we will want to go ahead and tap the unit so that any extra debris falls out. Now with the same tool, we’re going to begin dusting off the mouthpiece just like we did with the oven chamber.
Cleaning with Isopropyl Alcohol
With the excess herb removed, it’s time to begin cleaning the chamber and mouthpiece with isopropyl alcohol-soaked cotton swabs. We don’t have to worry about dunking/soaking our unit or mouthpiece in alcohol. We just need to go all around with a little bit of alcohol on a cotton swab and just lightly graze along the inside of the oven. This might take us a few cotton swabs, but slow and steady wins the race. Go over the top edge of the bowl also to ensure that we’ve gotten off any leftovers on the main body of our CFV.
Next with another alcohol-dipped cotton swab, we’re going to do the exact same thing with the outside of the mouthpiece. The only difference here is that we’re also going to include cleaning the inside of our mouthpiece. The reason for this being cleanliness as well as tidying out any loose fibers and lint that may have been lodged in your mouthpiece from putting it in backpacks, purses, or pockets. So we take our pipe cleaner and run it through the mouthpiece to gather anything left on the inside. Repeat with alcohol to sanitize the inside of our CFV’s mouthpiece too.
Wiping Down the Outer Body of the CFV
After that we will lightly go along and clean around the entire outside of our unit with a paper towel or a piece of microfiber cloth dipped in alcohol. We shouldn’t have to scrub too hard if we regularly clean our rig. Make especially sure to get our buttons and screen as we touch them every time we vaporize.
Hitting a Clean CFV
After that, we have a CFV that is as clean as the day we got it. Now let’s wait for it to dry a bit, then pack up our favorite herb and celebrate a job well done.
