Hey TC, I know people have mentioned various techniques throughout the forums, but I thought it would be useful to have a thread just dedicated to discussing the best way to reclaim pieces. I personally wait as long as possible, which I did for this dome to experiment, and I capped one end using a clip, filled it all the way with 91% Isopropyl Alcohol, and varied between shaking it and letting it sit for about 10 minutes, or until the alcohol looks really dirty. I then purged off the ISO on boiling water (scary because I'm used to 160 degree water for BHO). This time around, I accidentally spilled some water into my pyrex as it was purging, but it ended up coming out nicely. 1.8 g's
still not totally clean, but it was so dirty and I got so much that I don't mind. reclaim in the lower left dish
This is the way I like to do it, but I also know simply using the torch to heat the glass (which supposedly is ok if with boro when done evenly and slowly) makes the claim drip out nicely. What are TC's opinions?
Also, I know that reclaim is not as tasty or nice looking as regular erl, and therefore is great for making edibles, but is it still ok to vape? I have read about ti-oxide getting into it, I wonder about the effect it has sitting in water over time, and is it the same high? Some say it makes them more sleepy, etc. Thanks! Dab on TC
