Sorry, I meant to post a pic last night. I'll go ahead and do that when I get home.

Now, there are a few dark juices that I've learned the cartos last longer if I wash them before refilling, but so far I've only had to do that with 1 or 2 juices.

Is it dangerous to overuse empty carts? I am still getting vapor from the Vapor Kings and as I said before I can't really taste if it's burning, as these are my first VPs.
TIA for any and all help. :)
There are 2 ways I use to know if they are burnt. One is taste! If it tastes burnt there is no getting that taste out and it's not worth using anymore! The other way is if you put a flashlight on the bottom of the carto ad look into the top of the air tube and you can see a burned hole in the side of the tube. I usually keep them around unless filling gets on my nerves because of the burned hole. If you can't tell that there's anything wrong with the tube and it doesn't taste burned then I don't see why you would want to throw them out. You will know when it's burned. Just keep on vaping!
So here are my pics:
You can see I have labels for the different flavors that are in the cartos. I usually take some time to fill 5 with each of my preferred flavors and then put them in their place:
The second row (from the top) is for cartos that need to be refilled, the third row are my empty/cleaned cartos that are just waiting to be filled with juice and the 4th row is for all of my spare batteries:
I keep most of mine color coded (menthol = green, cinnamon roll = brown, etc.). And I have yet to fill up all of those slots with "favorite" flavors. I've been at this for about a year and a half now and I still haven't tried everything! Once I fill up all 11 slots with favorites I will probably get a new box.
HAHA! Thank you! I guess I will be able to tell when it's burnty even if it is my first time. Especially since my taste buds are getting back to normal.
Yeah, the first time is what it takes. You'll get the hang of it! Most of this takes experience. That's why it's nice to have this forum, so we can share our experiences :)

Here is the ashtray I keep on my desk to hold random cartos and equipment so they're not rolling around on my desk.
Here is the little candy tin I can carry with me from desk to couch to bed with my cartos in them:
One is for the full cartos and one is for the empty ones.
And here is my takle box that holds my syringes, juice, condoms, mouth pieces, misc. stuff.
Thats a nice set up as well Harmony!!
That's not all my stuff, just how I organize it all.
