A gnarly bong spells disaster for your sesh, something that new smokers find out the hard way. Imagine getting excited when you got your delicious herbs in the mail, only to ruin the moment with your dirty bong. The good thing about glass bongs is that they are easy to clean, and there are several ways to do it. We’ll teach you the best way to clean a glass bong to keep your sessions full of flavor, enjoyable, clean, and sanitary!
For many, this is the best way to clean a glass bong because of several reasons:
The things you’ll need will be 95% isopropyl alcohol or higher, rock salt, and Ziploc bags. You can easily get these in a grocery store, pharmacy, and even online for delivery. To get started with the cleaning:
Coarse salt is highly recommended as they provide the right amount of abrasiveness to clean the bong. Table salt is difficult to use because they are too fine and won’t give that scrubbing power that you need. In case your bong parts have clogs, you can use a really fine wire to gently poke out the blockage. Don’t use a wooden toothpick as it can break and clog the openings.
Some commercial cleaning solutions are available specifically formulated to get rid of sticky resin from the bong. These are:
These cleaning solutions work differently, but many use them for cleaning glass pieces quickly. If you find the alcohol-salt method too messy, these are the ones you can use. They are more expensive, though, but they’re an investment if your adulting duties are eating up your bong maintenance time.
Regular maintenance keeps your glass bong looking pretty and brand new. You’ll always see that beautiful brilliance and sparkle that made your heart jump when you unboxed your bong. You also remove that foul rotten resin smell as well as sour taste from your bong. You’ll always appreciate the original smell and flavor of your herbs, especially if you just bought a really expensive herb.
You also keep yourself away from disease. Thick, sticky resin is a good breeding ground for germs, bacteria, viruses, and fungus. Some experience getting sick because they keep using their dirty bongs for days or weeks.
Taking care of your bong means taking care of yourself. Always clean your bong regularly so that your sessions are pure, full of flavor, and safe.
