After using your bong or water pipe, sticky substances will remain behind in the bong. A dirty bong is not good for the taste, so cleaning your bong regularly is necessary. Especially the downpipe, adapter and other parts where the smoke is concentrated through small openings will get dirty faster. Also the bowl in which the cannabis is burned will have to be cleaned more often.
Cleaning acrylic bongs
Cleaning plastic bongs is easy with a brush and cleaning agent that is suitable for this material. Never use alcohol in combination with plastic pipes or bongs. Preferably use a biological cleaning agent such as bong cleaner.
Clean your glass waterpipe with alcohol or bong cleaner
For cleaning glass bongs and parts you can use isopropyl alcohol or bong cleaner. With a brush you can clean most of the bong. For downpipe, adapter bowl and narrow openings you can use pipe cleaners. Afterwards you rinse them with lukewarm to warm water. Note: when you expose a glass bong to sudden temperature fluctuations, the glass may break. Never use boiling water to start cleaning a bong.
