Having a bong is great, but they do get dirty. After all, smoking from it exposes your lungs to smoke and the residue inside of your beloved bong will build up over time. This can lead to dirt, grime, and grease getting trapped inside of the bong and becoming almost impossible to clean. Cleaning your bong can be a pain but it’s so important to keep it clean in order to avoid nasty buildup and maintain its quality. Thankfully, cleaning a bong isn’t as difficult as you might think. The good news is that with the right information and some common household tools, you can clean your bong in no time at all! Follow along for our step-by-step guide on how to clean a bong:
Step 1: Get everything you’ll need before you start
Before we get into the nitty-gritty of how to clean a bong, you will need a few items to clean your bong with. The first is isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. You can find rubbing alcohol at most pharmacies and many grocery stores. You’ll also need a rag or paper towel to soak up the liquid and an empty bowl or cup. Make sure to get rid of any leftover alcohol in the container your bong was stored in. You will also need coarse salt or epsom salt as an abrasive.
Step 2: Disassemble your bong and remove the base
Now that you have all of your supplies, let’s get started! The first thing you’ll want to do is to take your bong apart. This will allow you to remove the glass base, which will make scrubbing much easier. You can either break the seal on the joint and unscrew it, or unscrew the top half and slowly separate the two halves. Either way, this will allow you to separate the glass and clear glass parts without damaging them. Next, you’ll want to remove the downstem from the glass. Some bongs have an internal glass piece and an external downstem, but in either case, you’ll want to remove the downstem. If you’ve got a carb, simply unscrew the carb and then unscrew the downstem.
Step 3: It’s time to wash
Once you’ve disassembled the bong and removed the glass base, you’ll want to soak the parts in the bowl full of rubbing alcohol. This will help to corrode any built-up residue on the glass so it can be easily removed. Next, you’ll want to wash the parts with the rag full of rubbing alcohol. Make sure to go over the parts carefully, and make sure all of the nooks and crannies are clean. Use a pipe cleaner on the hard to reach places. Add epsom salt or coarse salt with the rubbing alcohol and shake the piece around for a few minutes. This will help to get rid of any residue. And finally, rinse all the pieces.
Step 4: Dry your bong and assemble it back together
Now that your bong is clean, it’s time to dry it! This will prevent your piece from getting moldy or developing mold on the inside of the glass. You can use a towel or pipe cleaner to help you dry your piece. Simply place the towel under your piece and spin it around so that it gets completely dry. You can also use an air compressor to dry your piece. Simply place your piece in the air compress, and blow the air out the side so that it dries the piece out.
