Can heat ruin your vape juice? Yes. Exposure to heat, air, and light can all cause your e-liquid to expire faster. This is why we recommend storing your vape liquid in a proper storage container and keeping it in a cool, dark place.
The Best Place To Store Your E-Juice
You can store your e-liquid anywhere that others, especially minors, can’t access it. This could be a locked cabinet or similar. However, the best place, as far as keeping your e-juice fresh goes, is a refrigerator or freezer. Keeping your juice cool will help prevent it from expiring too fast, allowing you to enjoy it later without having to worry about it losing flavour or otherwise becoming too old to vape.
Ideally, keep your e-liquid inside airtight glass containers. If you’ve purchased bottled e-juice and it’s already in a plastic bottle, that will certainly suffice. Still, the best containers for vape juice are made from dark glass. The less transparent the glass is, the more it will protect your precious juice from exposure to light.
Let’s recap. The best way to store your vape juice to make it last longer is to:
- Keep in a cool, dark place like a fridge or freezer.
- Store it in a dark glass bottle.
Remember To Safely Store Your Vaping Supplies
The one thing you always want to remember when storing e-juice is to make sure that it can’t be accessed by kids or pets. As most vape juices contain nicotine, there is a risk of nicotine poisoning if the juice is directly consumed. Youngsters and pets that come across it might think it’s a tasty treat and decide to eat or drink it. To protect those around you, whether they’re on four legs or two, make sure that all of your vaping supplies are safely stored in an area where they are only accessible to you. Ideally, keep them locked up and out of sight.
How Long Does E-Juice Last?
When stored properly, your e-liquids can last anywhere from one to five years. E-liquids that contain menthol, which are known as iced e-liquids, will typically last longer. So if you enjoy the cool taste and strong throat hit of a menthol-infused vape juice then you’re in luck when it comes to the longevity of your juice because there’s a good chance that it will last longer than other e-juices.
