I am some what new to vaping, and I am finally on my first empty bottle of Pink Spot Gummy Bear (delicious btw). Now Im wondering if I refilled with a different flavor, how should I go about cleaning the wicks so the flavor is gone / doesn't mix with the new flavor? thanks :D

Hello and thanks for the welcome. I've been recommended by friends and thought it was too good to be true! just curious, is the vape for free totally gone now, meaning it will just be somewhat of blog / review site?

And to the original question, should I pull out the wicks and clean? Or just buy replacement wicks?

Thanks
-Dan

You could do a couple of different things.
replace with a new atty head
soak the used one in some pure grain alcohol or vodka and then let dry and do a quick dry burn
or if the next flavor is close or compatible you could just pat dry the wicks and refill

What Miss Moon said about cleaning your wicks.

And the wicks are made to be replaced anyway and will eventually need to be replaced even with cleaning they will only last just so long.

And welcome to the ECA forum as well :D

And the VFF store is officially gone now.

But we will continue to have contest just like the Bulk E-Juice contest for a Tesla and a selection of juices that is running right now.

And ECA will still be the best place to share information (such as how to clean wicks) and experience, learn about new gear and sales that are going on without the drama that seems to occur on a regular basis on some of the other forums.

And a place to form lasting friendships as well. :mrgreen:
