What You Should Know About Vaping and Window Cleanliness

Vaping is something that's grown in popularity over the past couple of years. This is why seeing people vaping has become more and more common. When it's done in open-air or outdoors, there's little to no residue left behind. The story changes once you're vaping in your car or indoors in general: your windows will end up with a film that's pretty sticky.

Where does all that come from? The VG (vegetable glycerin) content of ejuice is generally what leads to that residue. In order to prevent your windows from ending up with film on them quickly, look into getting a VG mix that's lower.

Clean the Windows

It’s important to keep our windows cleaned at all times. This is particularly true when it comes to dealing with the film that forms from vaping. A good rule of thumb is to address the film while it's still light, because all that requires is soapy water. If it's been too long and the film has become rather heavy, a mixture of vinegar and water should do the trick. Of course, whichever method of cleaning you end up going with, make sure to take the leftover moisture away.

Keep Your Windows Open 

Avoid vaping with the windows closed or in your car. It's key that the vapour has somewhere else to go. Otherwise, it will be trapped. This holds particularly true for driving around in a car. Car vapour can limit views while driving; in fact, it's best not to do sub-ohm vaping at all when driving. 

Weather permitting, keep the sunroof open. Have the windows open as much as you can as well. Aside from window residue, it helps to reduce humidity which condenses in cold weather.

Lessen Car Moisture

Do you have a carport or garage for your car? Let moisture escape by leaving a window or two cracked just a bit. There's also a solution that involves tube socks and kitty litter, which is great for cooler weather. All it takes is a couple of steps:

  • Get 2-3 pairs of long tube socks.
  • Get cat litter, preferably silica crystals.
  • Fill a sock per pair with up to 80% of cat litter.
  • Tie a knot at the filled sock's end.
  • Insert into the other sock from the pair, knot end first.
  • Tie a knot on the outer sock's end.

Keeping that in your car will do wonders for preventing moisture not just from vaping, but in general. Moisture also comes from the likes of hot drinks and even breathing! That said, when the weather is particularly humid, let the socks dehumidify inside, then just place them back in your car later on.


Vaping has grown in popularity over the years for a number of reasons. Typically, when it's done in open-air spaces and outdoors, there's little to no residue. However, when indoors and in enclosed spaces like cars, it can leave a sticky film on windows that will need either soap and water or a mixture of vinegar and water to remove. Lastly, make sure to avoid sub-ohm vaping when driving.
