Hard to say, alought probably not a bad idea to give em a quick boil in distilled water to remove any remenants from manufacture and cotton taste.
I vape like I used to smoke - I prefer to roll my own :)

Cotton wicks are very good give great flavour and loads of caper but you must keep them wet when vaping if you let them get dry they burn and taste really bad the burnt taste is truly horrific . As long as you keep them wet they work brilliantly..


I am trying to get some of that Bastos wick that TC has from what I've read it is the best wicking material yet for drippers.

The Bastos is fantastic in the drippers...  super absorbent and holds a lot of juice etc...  and just seems to perform that little bit better than most other wicking I have tried in the drippers...  :)

I did get some cotton wick a while ago...  unbleached and all that...  but the stuff I had was bad for tainting the flavour of your juice - even after a couple of good boils...!!!  However, I suspect that was down to that particular stuff and not all cotton in general...

Should have said something when you were here retrobritt, I'll give you some of the Bastos TC was nice enough to send for sampling.

ok built a micro coil in my trident using the cotton,im still not sold on how great it tastes (maybe its just me....lol) burnt my first attempt oh boy was that taste BAD!..........9 wraps .30 for 1.4 ohms running at 4 volts.So long as i keep it wet it tastes pretty good but not sure if its better than silica,plus points it wicks well,holds more juice than silica and is a dodle to rewick.......for me the jurys out will try for a while and see  :)

No that sasparilla one i was vaping the other day my order is still being held by customs .Ill never ever order from abroad again in that quantity. Lucky its bloody nice but its cost a fortune really. And I cant blame anyone damn so its all my fault hehehe.
