How to clean a soapstone pipe?
    #3864385 - 03/03/05 08:56 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Anyone know? For my glass pieces I use Oxyclean and soak em, maybe some rubbing alcohol if they need it. I don't want the porous soapstone to absorb oxyclean, though, do I? Anyway, all suggestions are appreciated. :smile: :grin:

I would imagine Oxyclean wouldn't be corrosive enough to do any kind of noticeable damage, but I can't say for sure.

Soak the piece in rubbing alcohol for a night. It made my glass piece all nice and shiny and new-looking again.  :thumbup:

what is a soapstone pipe? You have a pic of yours, or a pic from somewhere else on the net? doesn't sound familiar at all.

those look dope! i prefer my glass pieces though... I'm not sure how big the chambers are on those pipes, but i did think about it, and i would go to the store and get some of those fuzzy pipe cleaners, and some rubbing alcohol. run the pipe cleaner through the pipe, then dip it in rubbing alcohol and run it through again. i think it will eventually come clean...you'll just have to work at it. i've also heard of people using rubbing alcohol and salt to clean pipes (glass pipes, not soapstone..don't know if it will work good on the soapstone pipe)..salt will not disolve in the rubbing alcohol, and the alcohol acts like a solvent to the resin. basically it makes a pulverizing liquid inside the pipe. i don't think the salt build up would really be a problem if you flush the pipe out really well after cleaning it (the water will dissolve the salt).

Sorry, I forgot to clarify

I use alcohol on my soapstone pipe, it works as good as previously indicated on glass!
