- Twist the mouthpiece and the metal insert in opposing directions while pulling them apart.
- Once apart, clean both using a cotton swab and hot soapy water. The tar is very sticky, so rubbing alcohol usually helps speed up the process.
- Make sure the airway is completely clear.
- Allow the filter to completely dry before using it again.
- Reassemble the filter, and enjoy!
- Our cleaning brushes work very well as an alternative to the cotton swabs mentioned above, but are not required.
- Make sure you also have a spare o-ring or two available in case your current ring needs to be replaced.
- Sometimes the tar is very resilient. Soaking the filter prior to cleaning will help loosen it up and will make the cleaning process much easier.
It’s always a good idea to have a supply of TarGard cleaning accessories on hand to help make the job easy.
