How To Clean Your Glass Bong

Thick Beaker Bong

Compared with other smoking methods, bongs have many advantages, such as joints, blunts, and dry pipes, but it also has a little trouble: you have to clean them. This is not just an optional thing you can do, it is necessary for various reasons.

Why should I clean the bong?

If you understand why you should maintain your car regularly, then you should easily understand why you should clean your bong. Just like a car has many moving parts that eventually need to be cleaned or even replaced, so do your favorite glass bongs.

Glass bongs are good smoking tools, but because their main feature is to filter smoke and cool it, or keep it warm and humid. But let's face it, the bong will get dirty soon. When you are hit, everything is sucked into the water at the bottom of the bong and stuck to the side of the glass.

There are some benefits to using a clean bong, but not all benefits are obvious.

Better filtering effect

Clean water filters better than unclean water. Water can only filter out so much garbage, after which the amount of garbage it can filter will drop significantly. Change the water often!

A dirty bong will make you sick

Another benefit of a clean bong is that when you use a clean pipe, you can avoid the risk of respiratory infections. Mold likes to grow in damp places, so you don't want to store your bong full of water. It should always be empty storage. You should also know that not all molds are green; some molds are black, white, gray, or even pink. When you use a dirty bong, you may inhale mold spores, which may send you to the hospital.

After sharing a course of treatment with others, you should also clean the pipe. When you share your bong with other people, if they get sick, you will also be at risk of getting sick. If you are willing to take this risk, that’s okay, but clean up your part immediately after you’re done so that you don’t expose yourself to whatever they had more than once.

After about 24 hours, the biofilm will begin to accumulate inside your bong. It is disgusting and harmful to your lungs. This is why you don't store your bong with water in it.

Hits will be smoother

The most obvious benefit is that your hits taste better because they are not contaminated by the stench of old weeds, old water, and old resin.

The more complicated the air path from the bowl to the mouth, the more resin and dust collected by the bong, and the more difficult it is to clean up. But don't worry, if you use it regularly and correctly, your bong will look and feel like a brand new thing every time you use it. How? Learn the basic knowledge below.

You will get a higher

Your smoke will be smoother, so you will receive more blows than you will if it is dirty. You want to taste the fresh sour diesel you just picked up rather than the old diesel from last week, right?

Dirty bong smell bad

If you want to be cautious about the use of marijuana, putting a dirty bong around will not help. The smell is unmistakable to anyone who has ever smelled it.

Reduce the risk of spills

The last thing you want to do is spilling nasty bong onto the carpet, especially if you are not in a legal state and you must have rented a place. Or on your sofa. It is difficult to clean up because the stains are ugly and the smell is often lingering.

How to Clean a Bong, According to Experts

When it comes to the best ways to clean your bong, you don’t need fancy solutions. The classic rubbing alcohol and salt mixture is still the best way to keep your piece looking brand-spankin' new. Those are two things [are things that] people have in their homes already. Let’s keep our community inclusive by using accessible products.

To clean your bong, first take out all removable pieces (like the mouthpiece and pipe). Pour 91% or 99% isopropyl alcohol into the bong and add some coarse salt, such as Epsom or rock salt, as an abrasive. Shake your piece for about five minutes, then rinse with water and soap. Vinegar and rice will also work, but I prefer the former method.

You can also buy commercial pipe cleaners, but aren’t necessarily the best for the earth. I find, for the most part, isopropyl alcohol and rock salt always do the trick. I love this method, not just because it works, but because it supports the idea of conserving the legacy of cannabis, and continuing what has been working for so long. But please keep in mind the conservation of our planet and our waterways. Don’t be wasteful with water you use to clean.
