For starters, "steeping" is a bit of a misnomer. Steeping implies that your e-liquid will be drowned or doused in something. This is not how steeping is done at all.
Steeping e-liquid is actually a process of aging e-liquid so it tastes better. Steeping e-juice is easy. You just pick a flavor of e-juice you like, make sure the cap is screwed on tightly, and let it sit.
Put them away in a dark place, like a cardboard box. Every once in a while, you should shake it to make sure everything mixes properly.
You can leave them out for a few days, but how long to steep e juice can depend on the flavor of the e juice you have.

All you have to do is open your bottle of e-liquid and let it sit in the open for at least 12 hours. This is to let the liquid in contact with fresh air helping oxidize and blend your e-liquids ingredients into a final irresistible flavor.
To expedite the process, Every 3-4 hours, you should replace the cap and shake the bottle. Although not necessary, Steeping for greater lengths of time with some flavors, can even further increase the richness of flavor.

So when you're steeping your e-liquid, make sure to check the taste and the color. When e-liquid has been aged, it should turn a slightly darker color than it was before.
This is because the e-liquid oxidizes the more it ages. The more oxygen it's been exposed to, the darker it becomes. You want your ejuice to get some color, but too much oxygen and steeping can have the opposite effects, so try your liquid occasionally as it steeps to find the perfect timing.
The best way to steep a lot of e juice when you're short on time is to fill up a bathtub, sink, or bowl with hot water. Then, put your e-liquid inside a sealed plastic bag and let it sit there for two hours and shake it every 30 minutes.
When e-liquid oxidizes, the vegetable glycerin and the other flavorings congeal and make for a much better flavor.
Throwing hot water into the mix is a great way to speed up this process. The ingredients break down and mix together much more easily.
Once they cool off, they taste a lot better because everything will be mixed more precisely. Just be careful not to apply too much heat, because you could end up ruining your e juice.
