tips on cleaning a sherlock pipe?
    #4633023 - 09/08/05 06:55 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I got sherlock style pipe a few months ago, and it has copped pretty heavy abuse since then until the other day it got clogged so solidly that i couldnt even pull air through it.

so I have used metho, hot water, lots of soap, pins and scraps of paper to try and clean it out, and while I have cleared enough resin out to use it to smoke again, it is still pretty filthy, and the combination of metho and tar smells fucking rank.

any tips on how to clean it out?

go to a head shop and buy Orage Stuff it works very well

Yeah that stuff works very good.

There's another solution that works well also but I can't remember the brand name.

However they both just eat the resin away.

I just recommend sitting your pipe in a ziploc bag filled with enough isopropyl alcohol to cover and fill it. Let it sit overnight (or at least for a little while), and then drain it and use pipe cleaners to get into the little nooks and crannies. Rinse with some hot water a few times.

I made a thread a little while ago called "cleaning a pipe?" (I think). I haven't tried anything yet, but there were some good replies in there. Salt and vinegar was one, the isopropanol was another.

I've been meaning to make this exact thread. :smirk: Nice.

I use 420 cleaner for my bongs and bowls but I'm scared to put it in my sherlock.

I did that once, and then while using something to clean the gunk out of the inside (it was a small batty), the pipe cracked cleanly in half.

NEVER again.

mouthwash works pretty good too.. anything with alcohol is fine. you can boil it but you have to be careful... hot pipe and cold water =  :dead:

Isopropyl and salt works great. It is essentially the same as 420 and Orange Chronic (alcohol, abrasive, and fragrance). Epsom salt is cheap and usually next to the alcohol in stores. It is made up of larger particles of salt so it scrubs the glass better. Also it is easier to clean if you don't let it build up so much the next time.
