When you’re working on your vaping gear, such as your coils, tanks, e-liquids, or even the device itself, you want to have a clean work area free from distractions or other problems that could make it difficult for you to get everything done. A dirty work area for instances will make it easy for you to lose the screws to your device, drop coils in the mess, and just completely ruin your DIY project altogether.
All of these possible happenings are why you need to follow these basic steps/tips to keep your work area clean and free of mess.
Take A Look at Your Area Before Starting
Before you sit down to work on your build, look at your work area. Are there any spilled fluid stains you should wipe up? Is there a half-finished project just sitting there, screaming for you to finish it?
Clean all that up before you start. Take any project you don’t plan on working on, and store it in a plastic container to keep it safe. Wipe up your area and disinfect it with cleaner to keep it free from germs and bacteria.
Have Storage Containers Handy
After cleaning up your work area, you need to sit down and get to work. You should always have small storage containers handy for these situations. Small plastic Tupperware tubs are perfect here because they inexpensive, easy to store, and can be sealed. As you work, place items you don’t need in these items.
For example, if you’re installing new coils, you could place your screws in the tub, as well as used coils or other items. You can also work over a small tub when opening your tank, in case any spills occur. This keeps the e-liquid from staining your work area.
Know What You Are Doing Before Working
Always have a basic idea of what you’re doing in your work area. This way, you can avoid just messing around with your coils and tanks without a purpose. Absent minded fiddling may result in some cool upgrades, but it can also result in losing interest halfway through and leaving a mess in your work area.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have some fun experimenting, though! DIY adjustments are all about finding cool ways to make your device awesome. It’s just a good idea to know what you’re doing at the beginning and venturing off into a few experimental areas, time and talent allowing.
Streamline The Process Logically
You should also streamline your work process in a way that makes sense and is logical to your goals. For example, if you’re removing some coils from your tank to install new ones, you should have small tubs for the screws, another for the old coils, one where you can place the open tank, and another for the new coils.
You’re creating a sort of “assembly line” process here that streamlines your experimentation and makes it harder for you to make a mess. Prevention of messes is the best way to keep your area clean and the easiest way to do that’s by making the process as streamlined as possible.
As you can see, it’s possible to not only keep your work area clean, but to do so in a way that improves your work quality. Cleanliness and precision are crucial to working on your vaping equipment properly. The cleaner you keep your work area, the better your adjustments will be.
