One of the most used methods to smoke marijuana is using a bong, these are water pipes used by cannabis consumers to enhance their experience and cool the smoke inhaled.
Bongs come in different models, sizes and shapes, and can be made of different materials such as glass, plastic, wood, clay, bamboo or ceramic. Regardless of the material they are made of, their constant use accumulates residues in your bong, therefore, they require cleaning all the time to maintain a pleasant tasting smoke. But do you know how to do it properly?
It is actually very easy to clean a bong after you use it. Just follow these simple steps:
1- Find the utensils you will need:
To clean your bong you will need to get some gloves, rubber bands, pipe cleaners, (which will allow you to reach hard to reach places), bunging materials (cotton balls, gauze or hand towels), kosher, coarse sea or iodized salt, and an alcohol solution with a high concentration of isopropyl alcohol.
The first thing to do is to disassemble your bong or pipe, disassemble the mouthpiece and all the parts that can be separated. Place the parts in hot water and then let them air dry.
Then add the alcohol and salt solution, essential ingredients when cleaning your bong. Start by adding enough salt, to make sure that the alcohol is saturated and can no longer dissolve. This way you will achieve an abrasive effect that will allow you to clean more easily.
Once you have added the alcohol, the next step is to cover the tube and the bong handle with pieces of absorbent cotton. Then shake the bong vigorously for at least 5 minutes and you’re done. Now you can use your bong and forget about bad smells.
