When we receive deliveries from our wholesaler all products are handled with protective gloves and the external surface of the product are wiped down with antibacterial wipes.
When you order is being packaged for dispatch the same process applies, handled with gloves and wiped down with antibacterial wipes.
Hand Sanitiser is being used and hands washed regularly.

Corona Virus Advice for Vapers
Please be mindful if you are vaping outside, social distancing measures of keeping 2 meters away from others will not stop your vape clouds drifting onto them so please allow extra distancing especially all you cloud chasers!
Make sure that you don't allow anyone else to handle or share your vape as this is very risky and could easily transfer the virus from them to your vape and onto your mouth.
Regularly clean your vape, make sure you have turned the device off and it is not charging. Gently wipe it down with an antibacterial wipe if you have one, if not a baby wipe or a damp cloth or sponge soaked in soapy water.
Ideally take the mouth piece off and wash this by hand under a tap with soapy water. You should also wash your tank regularly by dissembling it, removing the coil and cleaning in a soapy water solution.
If you have a protective case on your MOD remove it and clean it separately.
Make sure the device is completely dry before turning it back on. Avoid using bleach or strong bathroom or kitchen cleaners as these could damage the finish of your vape.
Ideally this should be completed daily if you are coming into contact with others at work, on public transport etc
Don't leave you mod unattended where someone else might touch it.
Remember stay at home and maintain social distancing when you have to go out. Wear a protective face covering or mask when you are unable to social distance.
Stay safe and check the NHS website if you need more information.
