This weeks weekly youtube livestream was dedicated to deep cleaning the Mighty vape bowl. Mighty users everywhere have written me requesting help with their dirty Mighty bowl. The aluminum surface will bronze over time and blacken with the years – regardless of capsule use.
In this video I show and talk about several methods to restore the bowl of the Mighty vaporizer.
We start with a bowl to make the Mighty nice and warm. The bowl will come clean more easily that way.
While the Mighty warms up, I take a dab with the Rio dabrig.
Ways to clean Mighty bowl
- alcohol prep pads -> hot bowl = steam
- steel wool
- magic eraser / melamine sponge
- dental tools / pick tool
When your Mighty bowl is stained dark bronze or black, as mine was, there’s a thick layer of insulation on the surface preventing heat from its optimal path into your herb.
To loosen this black layer, heat up the Mighty and stuff an alcohol prep pad into the bowl and replace the cooling unit.
When the sizzle stops, the pad is probably dry. Run a few pads through it to let the alcohol steam work some magic.
After a few pads, use tweezers or another tool to scrub the Mighty bowl using an ISO q-tip or alcohol prep pad.
Be careful. The steam can and will burn you. Don’t let alcohol accumulate in the bowl or heater.
Abrasives vs Dirty Mighty Bowl
I don’t recommend abrasives unless absolutely necessary.
Use steel wool to gently scrub the bowl. Be careful to prevent shavings of steel wool from falling down into the heater. I recommend wrapping the screen in paper or plastic (without the heat).
Magic Erasers or Melamine sponges will also work. Again, be careful. You do not want Melamine in your lungs.
