How to tell if your e juice needs steeping?

Fortunately, many big brands take a great deal of time and energy to craft a perfect vape juice for its customers. That sets them apart from the ordinary vape brands. If you are buying from reputable brands, chances are that your e juice would already be steeped. However, there are some brands in the market that only care about its productivity irrespective of what quality they offer. There are some ways you can get to know if your e juice is steeped or not.

Notice the color and taste

If you are a nicotine lover, you would know that a steeped e juice has a dark brown accent in its color. Try noticing that and surely you would be able to recognize the difference between a steeped and an e juice that isn’t steeped at all. In case it doesn’t give you a clear idea, you can also taste it to see if it has a smooth alcohol taste. If it does, your e juice is likely to be steeped.

On average, e liquids can take around 1-2 weeks, while there are some that can take couple of weeks or maybe months.

Let it breathe!

Breathing is important; we all agree on this one.

Let your E juice breathe every once in a while to let it evaporate. It is recommended that you let the cap open for couple of hours. However, don’t let it out in the open for long; you don’t want a dead floating mosquito in your bottle.

Stretching is important (don’t know what that means?)

You have to use the combination of both i.e. steep and breath. You can do it by shaking your bottles then letting it float in mildly hot water or under a warm tap. Then uncap it and let it cool at someplace quiet for couple of hours. Lastly, cap it tightly and shake it a bit.
