Diluting Extraction Cleaner for Glass and Metal Tubes

Share post
  • Cannabis extracting has grown in popularity creating new markets for butane hash oil (BHO) and CO2 wax. The process of extracting creates a highly concentrated THC wax that can be consumed from a dab rig or commercially available vape pens. The extraction process also creates a significant cleaning challenge as the cannabis wax from both BHO and CO2 extraction are very sticky and can be difficult to clean work surface areas without cross-contaminating the produced wax.

    Kryptonite Extractor Cleaner is engineered to be diluted up to 40:1.

    1. Remove Plant Matter

    To clean extraction tubes ranging from glass to metal, you must first remove all plant matter from the tube and dispose of it appropriately. We recommend wallpaper trays as they are long and skinny vessels perfectly suitable for soaking glass or metal extraction tubes and are available on Amazon.

    2. Dilute Extractor Cleaner With Water

    To start, dilute approximately 6 ounces of Extractor cleaner into one gallon of water. This solution can be used multiple times over a several day or week timeframe before needing to be replaced.

    3. Pour The Solution

    Pour the solution into a wallpaper tray and place your glass or metal extraction tube into the solution. Ensure the extraction tube is fully submerged in the cleaning solution. Kryptonite Extractor cleaner with this level of dilution should remove all remaining plant and wax matter from the tube in minutes depending on how saturated the tubes are with plant matter or wax.

    4. Brush Extractor

    To increase the speed of the cleaning process, tube brushes can be used and should result in an almost immediate clean.

    5. Rinse Extractor

    Once the tube is soaked or brushes have been applied, remove the tube from the extractor cleaning solution and rinse completely with warm water. Kryptonite Extractor Cleaner will wash cleanly with warm water leaving no smell or residue behind. Allow your tube to dry naturally and you will then be ready to resume the extraction process.
