Best Practices for Storing Nicotine Liquid

Follow these simple steps for preserving the flavor and quality of your e-cig liquid

Although we have already covered the basics on how to properly store nicotine liquid in previous blog posts, we figured that such an important topic deserves a more detailed discussion.

Proper e-cig storage is common sense and isn't very complex, so chances are if you're a veteran vapor smoker you may already be following these best practices for preserving the lifespan of your nicotine liquid. However, if you are fairly new to vapor smoking or have questions about the best way to store your e-cig supplies, then keep reading this article for some helpful tips from the professional "vapologists" at VaporFi.

E-Liquid Storage Techniques

The nicotine liquid we sell at VaporFi is made with only the highest quality natural ingredients – however, like any other consumable product, it does have a shelf life. Properly handling and storing your liquid can go a long way in preserving its taste and preventing it from going stale prematurely. In fact, a bottle of nicotine liquid can stay perfect for up to two years –if you know the right storage techniques.

Sensitivity to Light and Heat

The main rule of thumb to follow when storing your backup bottles is that nicotine liquid should be stored someplace dark and cool. The nicotine in e-cig liquid is sensitive to light and heat, and the blend will lose its freshness and flavor faster when exposed to these elements for too long.  Low temperatures delay the natural chemical processes in nicotine liquid and slow down the growth of bacteria.

Some vapor smokers choose to store their extra bottles of nicotine liquid in their refrigerator or freezer, but this can alter the taste and consistency of the blend. Keeping your liquid at or just below room temperature (65-72 degrees Fahrenheit) is ideal. If you do decide to store your e-cig liquid in the fridge, allow it to sit out and return to room temperature before vaping.

Basements are typically darker and cooler than the rest of the house, and therefore make a great place to store nicotine liquid. Cabinets and cupboards are also excellent places for long-term liquid storage since they also offer an easy way to keep your supplies from getting into the wrong hands—whether through choosing a cabinet that is high up or locking the doors.

Long-term Storage

Now that you have some ideas on where to store nicotine liquid, let's talk about what to store your liquid in. The plastic bottles that most liquids come in are not meant for long-term storage, so if you like to buy your e-cig supplies in bulk and some of your nicotine liquid will be stored for a month or longer, then we recommend transferring it to an air-tight bottle with tinted glass. These small vials are fairly cheap (a dollar or less) and easy to find – look online or go by your local general/health store. This small investment is well-worth the longevity you'll get out of your nicotine liquid's quality and flavor.

Steeping: Yay or Nay?

By doing a quick online search, you will see that there is quite a debate on the technique known as "steeping" and whether it actually works. Steeping, for e-cigs, is the process of soaking liquid nicotine in hot water for a specified amount of time in order to ripen certain flavors and intensify nicotine potency.

While some vapor smokers may have experienced success in steeping other nicotine liquids, here at VaporFi we don't recommend using this method on our products. All of the flavors we create –and any other high-quality nicotine liquid for that matter– should already be perfectly mixed from the get-go. And you can't perfect perfection!
