How to clean a glass bong??
    #2729195 - 05/25/04 08:40 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

i'm thinking about cleaning my two footer. Here ae a couple questions:

(1)Should I clean it? Asthetically it may look better, but is there any other reason for cleaning it? (is the shit that sticks to the glass bad for you or something?

(2)what should I use to clean it? I'm a bit skittish about using an alcohol based cleaner, because I don't want my hits tasting like alcohol. But I know absolutely nothing about cleaning out bongs (does hot water alone work ok?), so any info would be helpful

Using isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol won't make your bud taste like it. Glass doesn't absorb anything, it will rinse clean. Pour some alcohol in there, then some salt, then cover the holes and shake the shit out of it. Repeat till clean. If it's really bad, let the alcohol soak in there awhile.

Yeah, glass you can even use a heavier cleanser if the piece is really in need of it.  If you want to be sure about not inhaling any vaporized cleanser fumes with the first hit, line up an uninflated shopping bag taped over the mouthpiece.  Spark it and re-inflate the shopping bag, drawing the air through the piece into the bag.  Discard fumes. :smirk:

I had a friend who didn't do that.  Had a friend.  You can read his tragic story at Freevibe.com.

Don't worry, I'm wrong.

If I have the cash, I use a cleaner made especially for smoking peices called "Formula 420". It cleans the THICKEST resin off of any glass peice in just a minute or two of shaking.

The key is to RINSE IT OUT WELL after you finish cleaning. Keep pouring clean water in and shaking it around until you can't smell any of the cleaner anymore.

It's obviously mostly just alcohol and some crystals that are either sand or salt (not sure which).

I wouldn't worry too much about alcohol residue after cleaning. All alcohol should evaporate from the glass within a few minutes.

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.
