How To Get Vape Juice Out Of Clothes

Many vapers know the pain of spilling their favorite juice and losing it all. But to add insult to injury, the PG in e-liquids can leave really oily stains on your fresh threads.

Seeing as though this isn’t spilt milk we’re talking about and it’s your favorite juice, it’s totally acceptable to cry over it. When it happens, many people try to wet them immediately with water.

Unfortunately, this approach doesn’t really work.

So, how do you get vape juice out of clothes?

If you’re out and about, we recommend simply leaving it alone instead of immediately hitting it with water. Once you’re home and able to change, follow the steps below:

  1. Lather some dish-washing soap onto the stain and let it soak in
  2. Massage the soap gently into the stain
  3. Once you have massaged the soap in, leave it to sit for 5 minutes
  4. Rinse the soap out with warm water
  5. Put the item into a regular wash, preferably in warm or hot water if the item’s instructions allow for it

That’s it, you’re set!

In an ideal world, people wouldn’t be spilling juice on themselves. But they do, so a few things you can do to avoid this include:

  1. Stop using the old “Boston round” bottles. If your favorites come in Boston rounds (as they often do), ask your local shop if they sell empty unicorn bottles so you can transfer your juice over into easier-to-use bottles and reduce spills.
  2. Know your device inside and out. If your spills are related to your tank itself and it wasn’t user error, maybe look at getting a new tank or one which is easier to use and fill. You can also take your vape into your local shop and ask them to take a look for you to see if your seals are getting old and need to be replaced, and also to ensure everything is assembled correctly to prevent leaking.
  3. If your spill happened while mixing your own juice, try getting some thin rubber matting from your local hardware store to give your work surface a little extra grip.

If you spilled an entire bottle on yourself somehow, you’ll also need to replace it and since we’re doing lists today for some reason I recommend following these instructions:

  1. Head over to our vape map
  2. Find a shop  out of the 37,000+ shops we have listed
  3. Go forth and get some more juice

Currently located in Sydney, Australia, I have been vaping since 2009 and became active in the e-cigarette industry in late 2015. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of visiting over 700 shops in 6 countries.
