If it fits (or can be trimmed to fit), a plastic berry basket from the grocer's would be just about right. You can probably get something similar from a dollar store. It the holes are too big, the answer is tulle (the stuff used for those little mesh bags).

Ok I got the idea =) Thanks!

A milk frozer is much effective than the ultrasounds imo



?

A last question (probably)
Silicon bottles (squonk bottles) can go in?

I can't help you with the milk frozer (for reasons I hope don't need elaboration), but yes, silicon squonk bottles can go in. If they've developed a cut that's just about ready to open all the way through - like in the next couple of squeezes - cavitation may force them open before you have a chance to fill the bottle, and thus your pocket, with juice. But then a good old-fashioned scrubbing and squishing session would probably have done that anyway.

Was just going to clean some bottles for juice mixing. So wanted to give it a try.
But they don't sink all the way down. Caps either =)

Just be careful with cheap clone colored RDA top caps. My purple Goon wasn't purple anymore after a 5 minute ultrasonic bath. :)

I throw everything in mine. Except the colored RDA caps, but they're clean with a quick rinse anyway.

I think was talking about a milk frother.
Like a mixer of sorts will be better steeping than ultrasound.

Jess, I managed to find it out. =) Only these things didn't figure in my english vocabulary.

Airwinny, yes that I know... As a second state today, just searched for those very few white stuff I had - with some hope that the paint would come off =D
...of course it doesn't seem wanting...

EDIT: wrong! The paint is coming off hehe =)

Plastic bottles and stuff...
The silicon tubes definitely got whiter! But all still had a hint of juice sweetish smell, preferred to rinse all in water.

How long a little machine like that can run per day w/o exhausting it?

Not exactly sure, but I regularly use it 30-60 minutes constant in one day about once every two weeks or so when I'm doing my cleaning rituals.

Milk Frother😂

corrector went crazy, frozer, freezer, no frother..


'Steeping', bad term but..

We want the concentrates to leave their carriers, and get mixed evenly with the 100% of the Pg/Vg, and those carriers evaporated. Some evaporate quickly, alcohols, triacetins take longer. We don't want hot/cold pockets.


By frothing the juice after mixing for a couple minutes till it gets white and bubbly, we acomplish the best mixing and some faster carriers evaporation.
The ultrasounds don't get even close to what the frother does..


From TPA's site,

"Flavor concentrates are blends of various materials, both synthetic and natural, that are usually diluted in a carrier liquid. The most common carriers for flavor are Propylene Glycol and its derivatives, Ethyl Alcohol, Vegetable Glycerin, and Triacetin. The flavor blends we offer are very concentrated, and are not meant to be ingested directly without diluting; they are meant to be used as flavoring agents for many types of applications"
