Proper cleaning and maintenance of your Carta is integral. But how often should you be cleaning it? When it comes to cleaning any kind of dab rig, there’s no such thing as too often. We recommend you give your atomizer a good, thorough scrub every 10 – 30 dabs, depending on your frequency of use. This means removing the glass top and cleaning the intake hole or anywhere that’s even the slightest bit sticky. You’ll always want to use isopropyl alcohol and some sort of specially designed cleaning tool. As a rule, you shouldn’t be letting your wax leak passed the atomizer since it makes your Carta Smart Rig much harder to clean. Keep things neat by sticking to smaller dabs which work much better with the Carta’s design. Once your atomizer is clean, make sure it’s fully dry before you reinstall it. Also, don’t toss a hot atomizer into a cool glass of isopropyl alcohol or you’ll likely damage it through thermal shock.
