They say that cleanliness and godliness go hand in hand, and there is nothing closer to a heavenly smoking experience than using a nice, squeaky clean bong. A clean piece enhances the taste, smell, and even the high of the buds you smoke. Cleaning a bong may be a chore but, luckily, we have some excellent advice for you on how to clean a bong.
Is It Unhealthy To Smoke Out of a Dirty Bong?
Yes, smoking a dirty bong can be harmful! Keeping your equipment nice and clean does far more than give you the full range of notes in your favorite flower. What would Tangie be without that excellent citrus flavor, or why would you allow Blue Dream’s sweet berry overtone to become a residue ridden nightmare?
The residue that builds up in your bong doesn’t just look disgusting; it can be unhygienic as well. If you’re sharing a toke with friends and using a dirty piece, you are passing the inevitable amount of germ build-up around at every turn. This can lead to illnesses like the common cold or worse. Cleaning any built up residue in a bong or pipe can also help reduce unnecessary carcinogens. Your bud will taste better, and your lungs will thank you for it.
What Do I Need?
You’ll only need 4 or 5 simple household items to thoroughly clean your bong. You’ll want to gather:
– A small plastic Tupperware container with a lid
– Coarse Salt
– Isopropyl Alcohol
– Wine bottle cork (optional but helpful!)
How To Clean A Bong
Start by removing the bowl and stem and, while holding them over your container, begin pouring the coarse salt into both sides of both pieces to fill them up and cover them thoroughly. Then, using your alcohol, rinse off both pieces on both sides while still holding them over your container to catch all of the alcohol.
Lay both pieces in the container and add more alcohol to the mix to fill the bottom of the container. Place the lid on tightly and shake the container to ensure the alcohol and salt completely cover/rinse both pieces. When the salt meets the alcohol and friction is added it will act as a liquid sandpaper to loosen the dirty build up.
Now onto the bong itself. Start by pouring salt into the mouthpiece and down the chamber until it begins to collect in the base. Then, rinse again with alcohol in both the mouthpiece and the stem and bowl joint.
Seal all of the openings – you can use a wine cork to plug up the stem, and you can place your palm over the mouthpiece to fully cover it. Shake it up to thoroughly coat every inch of glass with the salt and alcohol mixture.
Remove your cork, rinse the bong thoroughly with hot water, and you’re done! Depending on how dirty the stem and bowl are, you can also let them sit for a few hours in the alcohol and salt mixture.
Now that you have the knowledge on how to clean a bong, it may be a good time to give your bong a superior cleaning; you never know when friends may be stopping by!
