The main component of IQOS Heatsticks smoke oil is VG PG, these two main components are also the main components in the e-cigarette e-liquid. Besides the two liquid components of VG and PG, there is inevitably a little bit of tar, so smoke oil remains in the holder every time after the heating.

The early IQOS 2.4 Plus did not have a built-in silicone ring, so the smoke oil can easily flow into the holder, fortunately, the new version of 2.4 Plus Protect Plus, the fourth generation of IQOS 3 and IQOS 3 Multi, and the fifth generation of IQOS 3 DUO have built-in silicone rings.

The soaking the circuit board with smoke oil is relatively rare but it is better to clean it every day to avoid the accumulation of smoke oil and mix the flavors of the previous heatstick. What is more, frequent cleaning undoubtedly reduces carbon deposits and repeated heating of smoke oil and reduces the release of unnecessary substances.

Please use a dry cotton swab or paper towel to suck up the smoke oil in the holder and wipe it dry after heating the heat stick per time.

Note: Remember to "dry first and then wet". Use a dry paper towel or cotton swab to absorb the smoke oil before cleaning with an alcohol cotton swab to prevent the e-liquid mixed with alcohol from slipping into some hidden gaps.

In many cases, cotton swabs may not be in hand, just switch to practical paper towels. If the paper towel is too thick, separate it into two sheets, fold it in half, then fold out a triangle, and then roll it into a strip, you can easily insert it into the IQOS to suck out the remaining smoke oil.

When the carbon deposit seriously affects the air intake of the heatstick, then you must do a deep cleaning, but remember to use the IQOS anti-break blade to support and protect the heating blade before inserting the cleaning tool.

According to the maintenance experience and data, more than 70% of the fragments are caused by accidentally breaking the heating blade during cleaning, just clean gently, 

Before the deep cleaning, use a cotton swab or paper towel to clean up the remaining smoke oil and tobacco. This is very important. If you don't "dry first and then wet", when cleaning with alcohol, the smoke oil will easily slip into small gaps after mixing with alcohol, and even slip into the charger.

How to use IQOSprotective anti-break rubber pad
There are two anti-break rubber pads in the IQOS cleaning kit, one large and one small. The larger one is used on IQOS 3 DUO / IQOS 3 or IQOS 2.4 Plus, and the smaller one is used on IQOS 3 Multi, because Multi has a small inner diameter.Be careful when inserting the anti-break pad into IQOS 3 Multi holder. 

Before inserting a cotton swab or other cleaning tools to clean, first check whether the protective rubber pad is just firmly on the heating blade, otherwise the heating blade will be broken when it is wiped hard. If there are gaps, you can insert a small toothpick on the bottom of the rubber pad, or try to use the pad originally used to protect the IQOS 3. 

Step 2: Use alcohol cotton swabs to clean the inside of IQOS
As mentioned earlier, first use dry paper towels or cotton swabs to "suck dry" the smoke oil, then use a slightly damp 70% sterile alcohol cotton swab to gently wipe the heating blade and the surrounding area, and then dry immediately.

Never use industrial alcohol, which is toxic and corrosive, or use any powerful cleaning agents of unknown origin, especially those knock-offs printed in Japanese!

There are many claims on the market that IQOS special powerful cleaners can efficiently remove carbon deposits, but most of them do not indicate the chemical composition. These powerful cleaning fluids are actually powerful solvents that dissolve the dirt on the surface of the ceramic heating plate, like the toilet cleaning liquid for toilet bowls, which does not damage the ceramics and can wipe the heating plate clean without any effort. However, for the transparent plastic bracket of IQOS 3 Multi, it may melt off, become brittle or cause cracks.

In addition, strong cleaners may also be harmful and corrosive to the silicone ring. Unless the original IQOS manufacturer discloses the composition of their silicone ring and a strong cleaner that can be used safely, use commercially available cleaning fluids to clean it. IQOS, the gain at any time outweighs the loss.
