cleaning pipes with 70% iso
    #3955482 - 03/22/05 09:05 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

my question is this: can you clean your resonated pipes with 70% iso alcohol, filter it thru a coffee filter, then evaporate what went through, and smoke that safely?

or are there other chemicals that may be harmful in the 70% iso and it would be better to try and find some 91% or higher?

I just dont want to waste all my resin.

You can definitely do that, I've done it before. However, just keep in mind that unless you have an incredibly resinated pipe, you won't be left with too much end material.

Would any type of rubbing alcohol work?

What about the impurities?

70% is just more water, you'll just be boiling that off anyway.

That tek has saved my smokeless bum on occasion

AFAIK, rubbing alcohol is whatever % isopropyl alcohol, and the remaining percentage water (e.g., 70% alcohol, 30% water), so there wouldn't be any impurities, unless it was poorly manufactured. You could always do the old evaporation trick to see if there are any, though.

I would say the best would probably rubbing alcohol with the highest alcohol content, although above 70 percent I doubt it would make a huge difference.

Don't they do something to it that will stop people from drinking it though?

Rubbing alchohal and the kind that you drink are different "types". They have differents chemical structures.

it's called denaturing, they add methanol

that, or iso is just dangerous by itself. i know they do it to ethyl alcohol, but i think it just evaps away with the alcohol.

DO NOT DRINK ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL! It is very toxic, and is very letal. The tek involves evaporating the liquid off to form a solid or almost solid. If you want to make a drinkable concoction, that would be Green Dragon, and there have been a few posts about it recently.

Hope that answers your question :smile:

the extra percentages in isopropyl alcohol is going to be distilled/purified water probably..that's what I've always seen. check the back of your bottle. i think what you described would be fine... the only benefit to using a higher percentage ISO is going to be the evaporation rate...the alcohol evaporates way faster than water...so the less water there is, the faster the whole solution will evaporate. you can speed up the evaporation even more by taking your mixture and putting it in a safe bowl and placing that bowl over a pot of boiling water....but make sure not to get an open flame near that bowl, cause that shit is pretty dangerous. you can also make a form of hash with the same kind of method.

So you can take any kind of rubbing alcohol, or isopropyl alcohol, leave a pipe inside it for a few days, wash the resin out, let the liquid evaporate, and it will be safe to smoke?

Cool.

Be careful of boiling down, use a double boiler system, on a lower temp. don't let it boil at all.

I was thinking about just leaving it for an insane amount of time. Or maybe using a hair dryer on it for a while.

I wouldn't trust myself with doing some kind of thing on a stove.

do you need to heat the iso solution in order to get it to evaporate? Can you just pour the liquid onto a broad surface like a glass plate and let it evaporate at room tempurature?

you don't need to heat the solution to get it to evaporate...it just speeds up the process..you could probably evaporate all the alcohol in a few hours by having the hot water underneath the plate/bowl, depending on how much you use.. i don't recommend using a hair dryer on the solution though...i'm not specifically sure why i don't like the idea, something just tells me to tell people not to try that.

there's absolutely nothing wrong with isopropyl alcohol except it is deadly to drink, dangerously flammable. there's nothing wrong with evaporating it.

as fare the residue left by 70% iso... that should not be a problem.

Smoking pipe resin tho may be :smile:.  Good luck with that i dont see why it would not work, but its not gonna be tasty.

With a higher % alcohol its going to evaporate faster and probably work better as a solvent.
