Bongs & Pipes
I dont ever let my pieces get too dirty. If the flavor of the flower starts changing, becomes harsh or hard starts to constrict the airflow, even if it is minimum, then I clean it and would recommend everyone to do the same. its a much better experience and if its just a hand pipe it takes so little effort to clean it.
its always a good idea to have a spare or more just in case. I was hanging out with my friends and one of them dropped my pipe. Shattered it on my patio. They all had looks in their faces as if the party was over! I though it would be a good time to show them my collection and they were all like " Oh..its like that" Yeah, around my place it is! I will not let a broken pipe mess with my smoking session.lol!
Thanks for the responses everyone.I just cleaned it and can tell the difference. Just like you said, the flavor is even better I just did not remember how nice it is to smoke out a clean pipe. I even went ahead and purchase a spare piece as suggested.
It did take me a little way to clean my pipe. you mentioned it is a quick process. What is the quickest way to clean your pipes and bongs?
A clean pipe or water bong makes all the difference in the world! You do not cook a fine cut of meet and cook it on a dirty pan!
While there are many ways to clean you pipes and bongs, I would suggest placing your pipe on a small ziplock back with alcohol and epson salt. Try to shake it avery here and there to make sure the epson salt scrubs the junk off the pipe and let it rest over night. Shake it well next morning and it all should be off. Lastly, you can use some q-tips to dry in and get any residual resin off the pipe.
@805-Cannabis Totally!! a clean pipe allows weed to taste the way its supposed to taste, Fresh.....
Gotta keep the pipe clean! That’s how it’s meant to be! I clean my every couple of days. Pipe cleaners literally are the best for me. But on occasion I do switch to a back up one or two that I hav me stored! Can’t let the sessions stop if one should break!
I found that when I switch to another piece I tend to avoid cleaning the first one (and it may just be me, but if it sits I find it harder to clean after a while). I definitely get the need to smoke when you gotta smoke though! I'm so bad at cleaning frequently enough. Any tips to get me cleaning more regularly?
@Informed High Yes! You can’t let yourself smoke until the other one is clean OR you have to clean it while you smoke. Makes for a great high stakes game!
I try to keep my pipe as clean as possible, but I do slip up. If we're talking schedule then once a week? If we're talking bong, I replace the water daily and deep clean her weekly.
I think thats a pretty good cleaning regimen for the bong! I try to do it about every other week but I do most of my smoking on a glass pipe.
I use plain alcohol and can take a while! What cleaning products do you use?
@Morning Stoner Right on for the bong. I’m a soap and water man myself!
pipe cleaners, hot water, and alcohol to soak in! Heck..once a week?
Once a week is probably fine, but if I’m having company, it gets cleaned before they come.
@RainDanceMaggie thats a good sign. I forgot to clean an old pipe once and my friends never let me live it down. Its a good habit to have!
@Decarbaked Thanks man. With friends like that - who needs enemies?
