All smokers know that a clean pipe is a happy piece. Cleaning your piece regularly will result in smoother, stronger hits, without the off-putting taste of ash. Our online headshop carries bong cleaning kits and supplies for pieces of all sizes, shapes, and styles.
How to Clean Your Glass Pipes
If you keep on top of cleaning your glass pipe, the process is very simple. It's best to clean your pipes between uses, however if that's too often, it should be done at least every 3 uses.
You can use isopropyl alcohol, but we find that this solution doesn't thoroughly clean the piece. We recommend using a specialized glass pipe cleaning solution, like NaCl.
Cleaning a Glass Bowl
To clean your glass bowl, shake the bottle of glass cleaner, pour it into the glass pipe or bowl, then cover the any openings such as the carb, and shake! The powerful solution will eliminate any residue, and make for a much cleaner piece.
Rinse thoroughly under warm water to remove all of the glass cleaning solution from the piece. Rinse and repeat as necessary.
For especially dirty glass pipes, we also carry pipe cleaning brushes. These specialized tools will remove dirt and grime that have settled in your pipe over a long period of time.
Cleaning a Large Glass Water Pipe
While the concept for cleaning large glass water pipes is essentially the same, there are more openings. Bong cleaning res caps cover these holes, and prevent the cleaning solution from escaping when you are cleaning it. These bong cleaning res caps greatly simplify the process, and allow for a much more thorough cleaning.
4 Reasons to Clean Your Piece
In order to take large, strong hits of your dry herbs,cleaning your piece regularly is critical. Throughout smoking sessions, pieces tend to become quite dirty. Without taking the time to regularly clean your piece, you may decrease the life of your glass pipe, and compromise the quality of your hits.
1. Clean Residue:It’s easy for residue to accumulate, and seem like a normal part of your glass water pipe. Not only is residue an eyesore, but the residue could catch fire after covering the carb.
2. Eliminate Germs:Smoking your glass water pipe with friends is a fun experience, but it can also spread germs. Cleaning your glass pipe regularly will eliminate these germs.
