Are these clean? Does it contain machinery oil something like that on them? If yes, how do you clean it? Dry burn?

Running an iso alcohol wipe over it will clean it, remove any oils, and sterilize it too ;-)

That said, I've heard that most all of the UD branded wire here is great quality.
Woah, mama!

In the cart then. I'll ask something else if you make your own liquids, how do you sterilize your glass bottles?

4 Ways that work great to clean glass bottles: (no particular order)

1. Pipe cleaners and dish soap.

2. Boiling it, but only by allowing it to heat up and cool naturally with the water.

3. ISO alcohol, a vigorous shake, and a hot water rinse.

4. Steam cleaning.

You can, but the boiling water can remove juice and sterilize it by itself.

No, unless you like doing that. I don't. Just wrap your coil and install it. Your fingers will probably get it more dirty than anything that's already on it. Do a quick dry fire before wicking and all is good.

Edit: I just realized you're talking about glass bottles now. Nevermind...

Keep in mind that nicotine is basically a pesticide and will also deter any bacteria build up in the bottle. PG (maybe VG too, can't remember) is pretty much bacteria resistant as well. So a thorough rinse in hot water is enough for the bottle (for personal use, if I was selling I would probably have an autoclave or use UV and a clean room in a lab.

More on topic, this has to be one of the few mass-produced fused claptons that isn't tangled and twisted to hell. In the cart!
