DIY Vaping Tip Reminder: Use Gloves

Posted by David on

Most DIY vapers out there have probably invested in lots of equipment for their DIY e-liquid empire. Between flavoring extracts, nicotine, beakers, syringes, and empty bottles, all bought from The Vape Mall we hope, there are a lot of components involved when it comes to making e-liquid from scratch.

In fact, one of the most overlooked components of the DIY vape juice setup is a pair of gloves. You see, even if you're extremely careful throughout the entire juice-making process, gloves are still absolutely crucial. This is especially the case if you're handling nicotine.

The Importance of Wearing Gloves When Crafting Your DIY E-Liquids

If you're going to be making your own batches of e-liquid, you simply must invest in some safety gloves. The right pair of gloves will keep your hands clean while preventing various disasters from occurring.

Reason #1: Gloves Keep You Clean

We all know that e-juice can get messy. Because of its oily consistency, vape juice can stain clothes easily. When you're mixing your own product, it's likely that you will get some liquid on your hands. Once it's on your hands, there's a good chance it’ll get on your clothes, too. So, by wearing gloves, you won't have to worry about having hands that are covered in oily e-liquid.

Reason #2: Gloves Keep You Safe

If you're adding pure nicotine to your e-liquid, gloves are imperative. Why? Because pure nicotine can seriously burn the skin. Safety gloves protect your hands and the rest of your body from any dangers associated with this substance. After all, what could be worse than getting a drop of nicotine on your finger and wiping your eye?

Reason #3: Gloves Protect Your Hands From Strong Cleaning Products When Washing Those DIY Bottles and Other Equipment

Yes, there are soaps and even baking soda, just a to name a couple, that can irritate your hands. For example, some dish soaps can make your hands dry and red, while too much baking soda on your hands, if not washed out properly can cause a small rash on the hand area. This is why you should always wear gloves when cleaning your bottles and other equipment. Not to mention, it’s a bit more sanitary, too.

Reason #4: Gloves Keep Your Hands Smelling Neutral

Because of the nature of e-juice, it's hard to avoid getting your hands dirty. If you're mixing different flavors, all of the aromas will likely absorb into your skin, meaning that your hands may smell like vape juice for hours. By wearing gloves, you can prevent your skin from absorbing all of those different aromas. Especially, if you have a skin allergy to a specific flavoring agent for instance but may or may not even know it.

Where to Buy Gloves for DIY Juice-Making

If you make a lot of e-liquid batches, you're gonna need to invest in a pair of gloves that are made to last. You can find all different types of safety gloves in hardware stores. In fact, many vape stores, such as The Vape Mall sell gloves as well, thanks to the popularity of DIY vaping over the years.

Tip: If you want your gloves to last, avoid purchasing cheap plastic gloves from the grocery store. These gloves tear fairly easily, so you basically won't get much use out of them.
