How is the Cigar Throttle cleaned and how often should I clean it?
Cleaning the Cigar Throttle is simple. We recommend using a paper towel and rubbing alcohol. Cleaning can be done as often as you like. Always wipe the magnet areas clean before use to ensure that there’s no stuck-on debris that could scratch your paint. We suggest cleaning every time you’ve smoked a couple of cigars so that the ash buildup doesn’t interfere with opening and closing the lock ring. Do not try to disassemble the lock ring. It’s permanently attached.
