Organic Cotton
« on: January 06, 2015, 01:25:26 AM »
Well I've been vaping just over 1 year now, the last half of that I've been dripping RDA's, as u all know once u go down that road it's hard to go back to tanks etc. I've always used organic cotton for my RDA's, I've tried all kinds of wicking but cotton is for me, anyhow a little over a month ago,  my wife and I were at a natural food store (not sure if it was Whole Foods) and in the "feminine hygiene" section I seen a box of %100 organic cotton tampons and I've always heard people saying NEVER use it for wicking (obviously) then I started reading the box a little closer, this is all natural cotton, barely touched by anything, chemicals, fragrance etc. I'm always looking for that something to give me just that much more flavor so I took the plunge and bought them, got home I boiled them, unwrapped them, (perfect strips btw) and let them dry, I've used them for my Stillare, Plume Veil, Doge and Mutation X, I won't use anything else here on out, here's the link to there website, I would love to have anybody's take or opinion on this, thank you in advance

Never tried them, either way. Have you tried Japanese Cotton??. I used to use organic cotton but since I switched to Japanese Cotton, I don't use anything else. I started out with regular cotton, then organic. With both cottons I get a sour taste(multiple brands) even after boiling. I never get that from the Japanese Cotton...

I love Japanese cotton, I do use it sometimes but I find it a little too pricey, but it is the best to wick with, until now, u should see how fluffy and pristine this is. I'm at work now but when I get home I'll post a pic or a video if it lets me

It IS pricey... $23 for a bag.  But then again, it's ... maybe not a "lifetime", but it'll last a LONG time, anyway.  Long enough that there'll be something better before it's all used up.

"Hey, remember when we used to wind coils and put wicks in them?  Man, those were the bad old days...  So, how many kilowatts are you running that Kayfun v9541.4 at?  My mod goes up to a megawatt, but I think anything over 300 kilowatts is just ridiculous!  Still waiting on my latest Fasttech order to leave Kenya.  They sure make things cheap over there.  I WISH I could afford a Chinese mod, but fuuuuu...."
Hey Todd, how's it goin'?

That link to Natracare didn't work for me (might be the "en-GB" part), so I looked on Amazon.  But after viewing 3 pages of feminine hygiene products, I... I just can't go on...  I DON'T WANT TO KNOW!!!!

The only trouble with using tampons in your atty is you could end up with a crack in it  :}}}

The first organic cotton that I ever saw was tons of it, ready to be picked, in the field. I asked about it and the deacon said some "old hippie gal" was growing it, for its color and price. This was in the delta about 1980. That was as close to good news as he had about the failing (and mostly former) farmers of the neighborhood,  with their woes of falling land values causing foreclosures and farm auctions then.

I've read somewhere that cotton and it's new GMO organism twin, is exempt from some of the FDA pesticide / chemical concerns, cotton being a fiber crop.

I suggest avoiding food with cottonseed oil listed. (real cheap oil) It's strange to me that the crop's stalks are harvested. I hope it's used for plywood and paper and not for bread and breakfast cereal.

It seems to me that paraquat ,or such, de foliage spray (chemical spray leaf killer/removal, in nature, this is Jack Frost's job), wouldn't help the flavor of your juice, either.

moral: trust old hippie gals.
I might be wrong..... but I figure the odds to be 50/50....
